October 21 @ 6:00 pm

he Roots of Racism: Exploring the Legacy of Dayton’s Racial Divide, Part II

Considering the ongoing social injustice and civil unrest in the nation, the city of Dayton is taking a look back at the historical events that have shaped our community racially, socially, and economically.

Part II – October 21st at 6:00PM (the early 1900s): The Roots of Racism in Dayton, Ohio: Segregated Social Spaces.

Hosted by Mayor Nan Whaley, this three-part series will stream on the Dayton Daily News Facebook page in 20-minute segments starting October 14th at 6:00PM. Each segment will highlight key moments in Dayton’s history from the 1700s to the early 2000s and feature elders from our community who retell their earliest memories of Dayton.

In this session, we explore key historical moments of the early 20th Century (1913 Dayton Flood, the great migration, and redlining) and how it helps to shape our experiences in Dayton today.
