Interactive Exhibit: Undesign the Redline, February 3-March 8, 2017

An interactive exhibit and series on the history of structural inequality in the US, KnowledgeLab, Neilson level 2. Visit and participate in an interactive exhibition, Undesign the Redline, which explores the history of structural racism and classism through redlining maps. The exhibit invites participants to “explore how redlining and other policies, practices, and investments create systemic disparities and inequalities that not only perpetuate our most pressing social challenges, but impede the full potential of democracy.”

The exhibit has been customized for our community, with references to New England history. You can view the exhibit on your own, sign up for a tour, attend a lecture or workshops, or visit with friends!
