On Nov. 5, 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Louisville’s race-based zoning ordinance in a landmark case, Buchanan v. Warley.

The Brandeis School of Law will mark the centennial of this decision with a national symposium on Racial Justice in Zoning: 100 Years after Buchanan.

The symposium will explore current racial injustices in land use, housing and environmental conditions, as well as the history of race and zoning in the U.S. and Louisville.

It will feature presentations from eight nationally renowned scholars, four from the University of Louisville and four from other universities, as well as a presentation on redlining in Louisville.

Sponsored by the Brandeis School of Law, with support from the Caudill-Little Speakers Fund, and co-sponsored by the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research at the University of Louisville.

Sheryll Cashin*, M.A., J.D., is Professor of Law at Georgetown University and an active member of the Poverty and Race Research Action Council.
