Please note: This class is presented is in partnership with Minneapolis Community Education and is not eligible for CE credits.

Racism in Real Estate explores structural racism and the racial wealth gap as it applies to housing. We'll consider the role of the real estate industry in the history of racial housing discrimination and the consequences of this history on housing equity today.

Recognizing that we cannot fix the issues and inequities of the present without understanding the past, this course intends to expose the racist policies and practices that shaped our cities. This class was created with materials from the Mapping Prejudice project and other research by instructor Denise Pike.

Mapping Prejudice is a team of geographers, historians, digital humanists, and activists working to illustrate the history of racial discrimination in Hennepin County. They are mapping racially restrictive covenants to show that large swaths of our residential communities were protected for white households, contributing to our current racial wealth gap.

The Rethos education program is funded in part by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
