"Lexington, Kentucky: Segregated by Design" The Black Yarn team of Kristen LaRue Bond, Rona Roberts and Barbara Sutherland will present their research documenting the ways that government policies and private interests perpetuated residential segregation in Lexington, especially from the 1940s through the 1960s, and the ongoing impact that those past policies and practices have on our community today. Dealing with such topics as restrictive covenants, redlining, planning and zoning, urban renewal and the roles real estate agents played, this one-hour presentation will include images and dialogue with the researchers. LEXTalks events are FREE to Lexington History Museum Members and $10 for Non-Members. Admission to the Museum is included, doors open one hour prior to event for viewing exhibits.
