Fighting Segregated Housing in the 1970s and 1980s
What exactly did Seattle’s open housing movement achieve? How were Seattle’s neighborhoods transformed in the wake of fair housing legislation? Once hemmed in to the Central District by restrictive covenants, Seattle’s African American population was slowly moving southward during the 1970s and 1980s. Learn about the ways in which Seattle’s segregated housing patterns were challenged and how the city’s racial geography changed in the midst of a housing crisis. Michael Matsumaru recently completed his PhD in history at Carnegie Mellon University. His dissertation is entitled “Unmasking a City: Blacks, Asians and the Struggle Against Segregated Housing in 20th Century Seattle.” A limited number of FM system and neck loop Assistive Listening Devices are available for this program.
