In this lecture, Dr. Johnny Finn will discuss his exhibition, Living Apart: Geography of Segregation in the 21st Century, which explores the ongoing impacts of our nation’s long history of housing discrimination. Christopher Newport University Professor Johnny Finn is a researcher and geographer. With this exhibition, Finn has created a way to see the long-term effects of racist housing policies in our region. Through maps, images, and personal accounts, we can see the damage that was incurred and grapple with the legacy of segregation to build a more racially just future.
