Redlining, a practice of systematic discrimination against African Americans in the distribution of home loans, left scars on the city of Dayton that can still be seen in housing patterns today. These patterns have a ripple effect not only on housing, but also on issues such as inequality in education and wealth. Utilizing narratives from the Facing Project, historical maps, and sociological literature, this poster seeks to shed light on the effects of redlining in Dayton by providing a historical context and theoretical framework. This poster will also explore current efforts in the city that aim to address and ameliorate the lingering effects of redlining.
