The legacy of redlining has cast a long shadow on the way Seattle has developed and is evolving. A panel discussion will examine the mid-20th century practice of redlining, which led to racial and ethnic segregation of Seattle’s neighborhoods through discriminatory lending and restrictive deeds and covenants. Seattle arts leader Leilani Lewis moderates a conversation about the racial and economic impacts on the city’s neighborhoods today. Panelists include housing advocate Xochitl Maykovich of Washington CAN and artist Jake Prendez of Nepantia Cultural Arts Gallery.
Co-presented by Northwest African American Museum, Pratt Fine Arts Center, Wing Luke Museum and Seattle Channel. The event will include free access to NAAM exhibitions, including Warren Pope: Blood Lines, Time Lines, Red Lines and Edwin T. Pratt: A Living Legacy.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Program at 6:30 p.m.
