Modern Day Redlining: Gentrification and the Legacy of Segregation in Chicago
Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m.
Presenter:
Win Curran, Professor and Chair
Dept. of Geography, DePaul University

While gentrification is often portrayed as a positive phenomenon that revitalizes disinvested neighborhoods, it builds upon the legacy of redlining and other segregationist policies to realize profit for those who can afford to invest while displacing longstanding Black and Brown communities. This talk will explore how the geography of gentrification in mapped on to that of redlining and argues that gentrification is a modern manifestation of redlining that re-inscribes racial segregation onto the urban landscape.
