From the NPR YouTube site:
In 1968, Congress passed the Fair Housing Act that made it illegal to discriminate in housing. Gene Demby of NPR’s Code Switch explains why neighborhoods are still so segregated today.
Our local KPBS station has what might be considered a companion piece to this video: Redlining’s Mark On San Diego Persists 50 Years After Housing Protections. It includes maps of San Diego showing the red-lined areas and a link to the April 5th Midday Edition podcast featuring Stephen Russell, executive director, San Diego Housing Federation and Richard Rothstein, author of “The Color of Law”.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
