REDLINING? OH, I’VE HEARD ABOUT THAT

But what do we really know about it? That it happened in our own back yard? That its effects are still being felt? What have we missed?

The Johnson County Museum Arts & Heritage Center exhibit, “Redlined”, is an absolute “must see” for everyone. Created by Andrew R. Gustafson and the local museum curating team, it takes a deep dive into the history of redlining and how it shaped and was shaped by Johnson County and the region. Learn about redlining’s 19th and 20th century foundations, how the private practice became federal policy during the Great Depression, its expansion during postwar suburbanization, the attempts to dismantle it during the Civil Rights Era, and how its legacies continue to impact communities and individuals in our nation today.

ARJ is hosting exclusive 45-minute private tours led by a museum docent. Following each tour, group discussions are held at the
nearby Bistreaux Restaurant. Space is limited to just 20 participants at
each event
