Housing Segregation and Resistance in Portland, Oregon: Notes from New Research @ Oregon Historical Society | Free Lecture

April 8, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Event Categories:

Venue

Oregon Historical Society
1200 SW Park Ave
Portland, OR 97205 United States
+ Google Map

Inspired by the fiftieth anniversary of the federal Fair Housing Act and the publication of Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, local researchers are uncovering and analyzing new sources related to the history of housing segregation — and resistance to that discrimination — in Portland, Oregon. Through a roundtable of short presentations, the audience will learn about the Black community’s creative tactics in resistance to housing discrimination, how the City of Portland used zoning to promote segregation or integration, ways Portland laws and policies created and enforced de jure racial segregation, and how private homeowners, developers, and realtors supported segregation through restrictive covenants in housing deeds.
