Redlining and Race in Greater Rochester

February 20, 2020 7:30 pm–9:30 pm

The Sig Synnestvedt Memorial Lecture on Race Relations and Human Solidarity will take the form of an evening lecture and deliberative dialogue followed by an afternoon digital research workshop on housing discrimination.

The campus community is warmly invited to a lecture on February 20 titled "Redlining and Race in Greater Rochester" by Mr. Shane Wiegand, a Rochester-based housing activist, and elementary teacher, followed by a deliberative dialogue led by Mr. Calvin Eaton, founder of 540W Main, Inc., a Rochester non-profit focused on anti-racism, housing preservation, wellness, and community education.

They will return to campus on February 21 for a late afternoon digital research workshop in which students will use online newspaper databases to research redlining in other New York State cities and towns.
