Event Dates:

Fri. Dec 4,  6:30 Virtual First Friday Film: “Jim Crow of the North”  - sponsored by The Madison First Unitarian Society and MOSES Ministry Team. Please join us after-film discussion at 7:30pm. Why does Minnesota suffer through some of the worst racial disparities in the nation? The team behind Mapping Prejudice looks to answer that question by examining the history of the spread of racist, restrictive real estate covenants in the early 20th century. Jim Crow of the North charts the progression of racist policies and practices from the advent of restrictive covenants after the turn of the last century, their elimination in the 1960s through to the lasting impact on our cities today. Following the virtual film showing, a UW-Madison expert on redlining, Dr. Paige Glotzer, will lead a discussion about the history of that racist practice in Madison.
