Segregation and Fair Housing in the Baltimore Area

Antero Pietila and Not in My Neighborhood bookAntero Pietila's landmark book, Not In My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City(2010), tells the story of how discrimination molded housing patterns in the Baltimore area, from Baltimore's 1910 residential segregation ordinance -- later struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court -- to redlining and racial covenants and real estate practices that were lawful until passage of the federal Fair Housing Act in 1968. Given the impact of historic housing discrimination, the Fair Housing Act requires local and state governments that receive federal housing funds to affirmatively further the law's goals.

Antero Pietila, local housing officials, and advocates discuss the roots of residential segregation in the Baltimore metropolitan area and efforts to overcome present-day barriers to fair housing choice. Carol Payne, director of the Baltimore field office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, moderates the discussion.

Presented in partnership with the Baltimore Regional Fair Housing Group, Baltimore Metropolitan Council, Baltimore Sustainable Communities Initiative, ABCD Network, Baltimore Neighborhoods, inc., and Citizens Planning and Housing Association (CPHA).
