FREE LECTURE: SEGREGATING THE FOOTHILLS
On Sunday, Oct. 2 at 2 p.m., the Lanterman House will host a presentation on segregation in the foothills.
Racial segregation in Los Angeles suburbs like La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta increased rapidly in the first half of the 20th century, driven by real estate practices such as restrictive property deeds and redlining. In this talk, historian Becky Nicolaides explores the history of racial exclusion in Los Angeles, its lasting legacy and proactive ways to achieve lasting racial justice in our communities.
Nicolaides is a founding partner of the History Studio and author of the forthcoming book “The New Suburbia: Life in L.A. Suburbs since 1945.”
This talk is sponsored by the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley and the Lanterman House. To register for the lecture, please visit www.lantermanhouse.org.
