In this episode of the His & Her Money Show, Linda Gartz joined us live for some conversation about something that's a little bit less talked about: redlining. Whether you've heard of it or not, redlining was once a hot topic in segregated America. As Linda describes, if an African-American family - or, to a lesser extent, other races or nationalities - moved in a neighborhood or even an apartment, the entire neighborhood would be suddenly ineligible for loans.
Linda breaks down the history of redlining and her own experiences, reflecting on the aftermath of Martin Luther King Jr's assassination in her own childhood neighborhood and bringing forward the parallels between then and now. The Fair Housing Act ended official redlining but it's still so relevant in today's climate, and this is a chat you will NOT want to miss. Check out Linda's book for more and keep the conversation going!
