Orchestrated Urbanism: The Race-Built City is a timely topic that both impacts and resonates with the design community. Research will be presented about Kansas City and the damaging role that racial covenants, red-lining, school desegregation and finally, urban renewal played in shaping not only our cities but our social understandings of the communities.
The discussion will be supplemented by powerpoint material providing relevant maps, historical photographs, and statistics related to the effects of red lining. A question and answer forum will follow the formal presentation.
The presentation will cover the following areas:
-Provide an understanding of the role that redlining has had on the historical development of Kansas City and similar cities,
-Provide a greater context for how existing city, state, and local policies are a reaction to historical red lining, and
-Outline steps that should be taken to respond to the historical fabric and development patterns left by red lining.
