R3: Race, Real Estate and Redlining in the U.S.: A Panel Discussion of Systemic Racism

The divisions of modern U.S. cities did not arise by accident. Real estate practices, federal loan programs, and even local ordinances combined to reinforce a process known as “redlining”, a practice that barred certain groups from obtaining mortgages and purchasing homes in specific neighborhoods. Such practices, over time, reinforced disparities in wealth, education, and safety and are reflected in current demographic data.
