Unfair Housing in Louisville

April 7, 2021

The Metropolitan Housing Coalition (MHC) and the University of Louisville Oral History Center, along with an advisory committee comprised of a diverse group of community leaders, have created Unfair Housing in Louisville: A Legacy Project, an oral history project focused on documenting, understanding, and preserving the history of housing discrimination in Louisville. Journalist and historian Michael Jones began conducting interviews this past December.

To continue these conversations,MHC is convening a community listening session for Fair Housing Month on Tuesday, April 27 at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom. Community members are invited to share their stories and their family’s story. This session will be facilitated by Riece Hamilton, Interim Program Manager of the University of Louisville Health Promotion Office and VP of the Black Faculty & Staff Association.
