Redlined: A Book Discussion with the Author Linda Gartz

October 29, 7:00 pm


Join author, educator, and archivist, Linda Gartz, for a discussion of her award-winning book . She connects the dots between today’s racial profiling and inequities to the government policy of redlining. Most recently we’ve seen Black Americans die at double the rates of whites from Covid-19, and George Floyd’s murder aroused world-wide protests against systemic racism, like redlining.

In this live Zoom talk and discussion, Linda will speak, read short excerpts from Redlined, and talk about the federal government’s redlining policies that separated America into Black and White. She’ll also share digitized versions of original 1940s redlining maps. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

To purchase the book, visit your local independent book store or order from Winnetka’s The Book Stall or Chicago’s Semicolon Bookstore & Gallery.
