Day 10, April 30: Racism and Housing
Today’s focus is on the intersectionality of racism and housing.

  • Article: This article examines why 50-year-old housing practices could be linked to poor health outcomes today. 

  • Video: This engaging episode of "Adam Ruins Everything," titled "The Disturbing History of the Suburbs," gives a quick overview of how redlining came to be.
 
  • Spotlight: The Shorefront Legacy Center in Evanston collects, preserves and educates people about Black history on Chicago's suburban North Shore. Their video, titled "Changing the Narrative: African Americans in Evanston," gives a fuller picture of the the Black community in Evanston and includes historical landmarks.
