The History Segregation and Its Impact on Black Communities Then and Now

Barnard Office of Community Engagement and Inclusion

Date: Nov 29th

Housing is an essential human right that supports all others, such as health, education and ability to thrive. The Affordable Housing crisis in Harlem is a complex challenge—with unique intersections, including race—that requires an understanding of history, past decisions, present conditions and what is truly needed in the near future to establish housing as a permanent and inviolable right. Senator Cordell Cleare is holding a series of events to delve deeply into every type of housing and provide a comprehensive blueprint of solutions. The Undesign the Redline @Barnard exhibition combines history, art, and storytelling with community outreach and collaboration in order to reckon with systemic racism by examining the legacy of redlining across NYC and Upper Manhattan neighborhoods specifically.

Panelists include:

April De Simone, Co-Founder,Designing the We and Designing for Democracy/“Undesign the Redline”, Principal, Trahan Architects

David R. Jones, President, Community Service Society

Miriam Neptune, Senior Associate Director, Barnard Center for Research on Women

Mary Rocco, Director of Engaged Scholarship, Community Engagement and Inclusion/Urban Studies, Barnard College

Barika X. Williams, Executive Director, Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development

Jumaane Williams, New York City Public Advocate

Moderated by Senator Cordell Cleare
