Event Details

Dr. Brittany Lewis, CURA Senior Research Associate, will share her research on the life cycle of redlining, disinvestment, predatory lending, gentrification and displacement in North Minneapolis, as well as the creation of the Northside Residents Redevelopment Council as a response to those practices. A conversation exploring the history of urban disinvestment and the important role that resistant Black citizens played in challenging these racially discriminatory public policies will follow.

The Woodson Lectures series sheds light on topics relating to the experiences of African-Americans throughout the course of United States history. Educator, author, historian and journalist Carter G.
