Interactive Workshop: The History of Racism in Housing in Arlington

Wakefield High School
1325 South Dinwiddie Street
Arlington, Virginia 22206

The League of Women Voters of Arlington is partnering with Challenging Racism, an Arlington nonprofit, Arlington NAACP and Virginia Humanities, to present an interactive program on the Federal Housing Administration’s mid-20th century use of redlining to prevent loans to Black people in selected areas.

Using local maps and stories, Challenging Racism will show how these practices affected Arlington by locking in segregated housing and influencing housing patterns today. Attendees will have opportunities for questions, discussion and reflection. Resources for follow-up reading and discussion will be provided.
