Tune in Monday, December 7th at 12pm ET for the first of a two-part AIA KnowledgeNet webinar series, ‘Learning from the History of Race and Urban Development in the United States’. Featuring speakers Jess Zimbabwe, Shalini Agrawal, and Garrett Jacobs, ’Part 1: Sampler: a History of Race and Urban Development in the United States’ will provide an overview of examples of how racial injustice is embedded in our built environment. Participants will learn about the history of race-based zoning, redlining, block-busting, racially restrictive covenants, and other determinants of inequity. Participants will also gain a better understanding of racial segregation in our cities, and the long-lasting impacts that have an influence on current inequities.
