Episode 19: Seeing Red : In this episode, we speak with Richard Rothstein about his book, The Color of Law, a forgotten history of how our government segregated America. We also talk with Braden Crooks, co-founder, and partner of Designing the We a company that created Undesign the Redline, an exhibit that explores the history of structural racism and classism, how these designs compounded each other from redlining maps until today, and how we can come together to undesign these systems with intentionality. This exhibit is on display at our Central Branch through the end of the year.
