Visit the 'Undesign the Redline' Exhibit at the Morton Civic Center
Submitted by the City of Evanston

Undesign the Redline

The “Undesign the Redline” exhibit, created by Designing the WE, has traveled to the 2nd Floor of the Morton Civic Center and will be on display for public viewing through October 20. 

This educational exhibit connects the intentional and systematic racial housing segregation of the 1930s to political and social issues of today, through the powerful narratives of the people and communities affected by redlining and its legacy. 

Personalizing the exhibit to Evanston and its history of redlining, additional panels will be added by Dino Robinson, Founder and Executive Director of Shorefront Legacy Center. 

Community members are invited to join the City of Evanston for an opening reception on Monday, August 26, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The evening will begin with opening remarks by Mayor Hagerty followed by a panel discussion surrounding the topic of redlining in Evanston. Learn the history, interact with the stories, and help invent the future of undoing structural inequities. 

The exhibit is sponsored by Enterprise Community Partners and the City's Equity & Empowerment Commission, and provided in partnership with the Evanston Community Foundation, YWCA Evanston/North Shore, Shorefront Legacy Center, Northwestern University, and the City of Evanston. The Morton Civic Center is located at 2100 Ridge Ave., in Evanston.
