Race and Housing

In 1968, Flint became the first municipality in the country to pass an open housing referendum. Despite the landmark passage, many of the act’s objectives went unrealized. In conjunction with its new exhibition, An Equal Opportunity Lie, Sloan Museum examines the impact of this important moment with an evening of dialogue about fair housing in Flint and nationwide. Delma Thomas Jackson will discuss fair housing within a national context, as well as the consequences of the passage of Flint’s Open Housing Act. A community conversation will follow. Attendees are encouraged to share their perspectives, their experiences, and their questions.
