About this Guide

This guide was compiled as part of Penn State University Libraries Diversity Week programming. The Diversity Community of Advocacy, Race & Racism Working Group developed a presentation about redlining, blockbusting, and racially restrictive covenants to share with the University Libraries community. These resources were collected as part of the research conducted to develop the presentation. Use the pages on the left to navigate between Mapping Projects, Levittown resources, Video & Audio Resources, Articles, and Additional Resources.
