Set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement, Linda Gartz’s Redlined exposes the racist lending rules that refused mortgages to anyone in areas with even one black resident.
As blacks moved deeper into Chicago’s West Side during the 1960s, whites flede by the thousands. But Linda Gartz’s parents, Fred and Lil, chose to stay in their integrating neighborhood, overcoming previous prejudices as they met and formed friendships with their African American neighbors.

Told through the lens of Linda’s discoveries of the personal and political, Redlined: A Memoir of Race, Change, and Fractured Community in 1960s Chicago delivers a riveting story of a community fractured by racial turmoil, an unraveling and conflicted marriage, a daughter’s fight for sexual independence, and an up-close, intimate view of the racial and social upheavals of the 1960s.

Linda Gartz is a six-time Emmy-award-honored television producer, blogger, and essay writer.
