Health disparities in American cities today closely correlate with color-coded redlining maps drawn by the federal government in the 1930s. This presentation will discuss the history of redlining, explore how it shaped and continues to shape the contours of interconnected inequalities (wealth, racial, environmental, and health), and analyze the persistent connections between race, real estate, and health.
