Jordy Yager, a Fellow with the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, will be giving a special presentation of his Mapping Charlottesville project.
With the help of a team of community volunteers, Jordy has reviewed thousands of local property deeds that contain racial restrictions against African Americans. He is creating a digital map of these covenants and is investigating how they have contributed to racial and economic disparities that exist in our area today. The project is a starting point for shaping more equitable regional policies.
As part of IMCC’s effort to promote racial justice and equity, we hope you’ll come and bring your friends. February 20th , from 7 to 8:30 pm at JABA. Refreshments will be provided.
There is no charge. Donations will be gratefully accepted.
