Not Even Past: Social Vulnerability and the Legacy of Redlining

Long-standing subscribers may remember the 11-04-2016 Scout Report feature Mapping Inequality, a project from the University of Richmond's Digital Scholarship Lab that explored how the Home Owners' Loan Corporation's loan risk maps facilitated a racist lending system called "redlining." Now, readers can expand on the historical context provided by this and other related resources (for example, Redlining Louisville from the 10-02-2020 issue or Moving the Line from the 7-17-2020 issue) with Not Even Past, another Richmond DSL project (in collaboration with the National Community Reinvestment Coalition) that explores "the legacy of redlining," in conjunction with "racial health inequities." As this resource exemplifies, racist lending practices and segregated housing directly impact other health and wellbeing metrics; and, the challenges of COVID-19 have only deepened racial disparities. On the site, users are able to directly compare redlining maps with maps of the Center for Disease Control's Social Vulnerability Index (an assessment of "a community's capacity to prepare for, respond to, and recover from human and natural disasters,"). Maps for 200 cities are available, and readers will find detailed instructions on navigating the maps under the How to Use this Site sub-section of the landing page.
