The National Public Housing Museum invites you to the opening of an important interactive exhibit connecting the intentional and systematic racial housing segregation of the 1930s to political and social issues of today. Explore the history of housing discrimination and activism through the powerful narratives of the people and communities affected by redlining and its legacy.

Be inspired by stories of vision and change. Become part of the conversation for new equitable policies and practices.

Exhibit is presented by Enterprise Community Partners, Designing the WE and Elevated Chicago.

A collection of the only known color photographs of Dr. Martin Luther King and the Chicago Freedom Movement, taken by Bernard Kleina during King’s visit to Chicago in 1966, will be on display. The exhibit will also feature an installation by Celestia Morgan that explores the histories of racially-based housing discrimination exemplified in Birmingham, Alabama.
