Tuesday, July 26th • 10:00 am
All are welcome to join Tabatha for a tour and discussion of the Johnson County Museum exhibit, “Redlined:Cities, Suburbs, and Segregation” on Tuesday, July 26th at 10:00 am. The tour will be led by a representative from the museum. The exhibit “takes visitors on a deep dive into the history of redlining and how it both shaped and was shaped by Johnson County and the region. Visitors will learn about the 19th and 20th century foundations of redlining, how the private practice became federal policy during the Great Depression, the expansion of the practice during postwar suburbanization, attempts to dismantle the system during the Civil Rights Era, and how the legacies of redlining continue to impact communities around the nation today.”
Tickets will be around $10 per adult (regular ticket plus group tour ticket.) After our tour we will gather at First Watch to discuss what we experienced during this time and learned from the exhibit. All ages are welcome.
