Two Sides of the Redline: How Policy Shaped A City of Neighborhoods

Across the United States, patterns of racial and economic segregation can be directly attributed to the systematic denial of mortgage and bank lending encouraged in the National Housing Act of 1934.

These nation-wide discriminatory practices, known as redlining, continued legally until 1968, when the Fair Housing Act banned racial discrimination in housing. But 50 years after that law passed, the lingering effects of redlining are clear. In this virtual program, hosted by the Maryland Historical Society, experts will outline the practice of redlining in Baltimore and discuss the historical, demographic, economic, and traumatic impact these policies continue to have on Black communities today.

Moderated by David Armenti, MdHS Director of Education with special guests Dr. Corey J. Henderson, historical trauma healing expert; Eric Holcomb, Executive Director of the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP); Antero Pietila, journalist, writer, and author of Not in My Neighborhood; and Delegate Stephanie Smith, District 45, Baltimore City.
