About this Presentation:

From the late 1800s until the modern era, Black Baltimoreans have faced and challenged race-based housing discrimination and governmental redlining. This historic discrimination greatly affected community growth and the socio-economic advancement of Black Baltimoreans. Yet, Black Baltimoreans today are still suffering from the effects of housing discrimination. Join Alexander Lothstein from the Maryland Center for History and Culture as he discusses the history of housing discrimination and challenges against it in Baltimore.
