Wright State University will host Undesign the Redline during February 2022, Black History Month. This exhibit portrays the effects of redlining—within the United States, outlining areas with sizable Black populations in red ink on maps as a warning to mortgage lenders.

The exhibit will be housed on the second floor of the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library. Faculty members can present lectures on this topic on the fourth floor after visiting the exhibit.

Please help make this exhibit successful by scheduling a visit to learn more about redlining and enlarging your knowledge about cities' sociohistorical change. The exhibit can also be toured as a class group, followed by a discussion about the effects of redlining.

Faculty members, please schedule this activity in your syllabi as extra credit—most importantly, to increase awareness of social history and positive social change. COVID-19 protocols will be followed for in-person visits. You can submit proposed tour dates and times for your class here. Docent budget is limited, so please submit your requests early.
