Uneven Ground: Housing Policy Discussion
November 14, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
“Uneven Ground: The Foundations of Housing Inequality in Durham, NC,” is a public history exhibition and engagement initiative of the Bull City 150 project. The exhibit explores how the current landscape of housing inequality in Durham has been shaped by a long history of racial discrimination by individuals, private industry, and government policy. Topics include the history of ownership patterns, the tools of housing segregation, the consequences of racially discriminatory land use policies such as urban renewal, and more.
“Bull City 150: Reckoning with Durham’s Past to Build a More Equitable Future,” is a joint project of Duke University’s Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity and the Sanford School of Public Policy examining the historical and contemporary roots of inequality in Durham. The project team includes Robert Korstad, professor of public policy and history at Duke, Mel Norton, Project Director, Kimber Heinz, Exhibition Manager, Tim Stallmann, Research Cartographer, and Tia Hall, Community Research Director.
