On November 5, 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Louisville’s race-based zoning ordinance in a landmark case, Buchanan v. Warley.
The centennial of this famous case will be marked on Friday, November 10, 2017, at UofL's Brandeis School of Law with a national symposium on Racial Justice in Zoning: 100 Years after Buchanan.
The symposium will explore current racial injustices in land use, housing, and environmental conditions, as well as the history of race and zoning in the U.S. and Louisville.
It will feature presentations on eight nationally renowned scholars, four from UofL and four from other universities, as well as a presentation on redlining in Louisville.
The symposium is free and open to the public, and includes a free light continental breakfast at approximately 8:30 a.m., and a free lunch at approximately 1:00 p.m., both on a first-come, first-serve basis until food runs out.
Please do not confirm your attendance; just come. If you have questions, please contact Tracie Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-852-1230.
