“In our time, the vestiges of systemic racism have less to do with intent and more often the lack of awareness. Historically, public policies that institutionalized racist attitudes often overlapped with economic protections.”
Last year’s shocking discovery of racist policies within the property owner documents of the Betton Hills neighborhood exemplified the amount of social and societal change we have witnessed over the last 80 years and underscored the manner in which systemic racism can remain invisible in plain sight for a lack of diligent scrutiny.
Betton Hills Neighborhood Association President Mike Brezin will talk with Brien about the origins of the now illegal lending practices that were in place in 1938 when Betton Hills developers sought FHA funding for prospective home buyers.
The music of Big Blue will bring us a refreshing opportunity to sample some of Tallahassee’s latest music and learn more about what Tallahassee is doing to encourage the growth of aspiring musicians.
Taylor Jones, Rob Kilgore, Jon Wilmot, and Eric Patewill talk with Brien about their origin and the uniqueness of their musical backgrounds.
