Local scholars, activists and community leaders will take an honest look at the trauma and profound loss created in communities of color by consistent exclusion and lack of access to resources through systemic methods such as redlining. The panel, hosted by Little Giant Creative, Next City and WHYY, will explore how historic and contemporary injustices play out in the nation’s poorest large city and one of its most segregated, with rates of poverty concentrated in majority non-white areas.
This panel series is part of A Dream Deferred and Philadelphia in Flux. The goal is to have real dialogue that works towards dismantling cycles that result from broken history, fostering greater understanding, and ultimately greater empathy.
There will be a reception with light refreshments and music following the discussion.
