In 1968, Flint became the first municipality in the country to pass an open housing referendum. Despite the landmark passage, many of the act’s objectives went unrealized. Sloan Museum examines the impact of this important moment with an evening of dialogue about fair housing in Flint and nationwide. Delma Thomas Jackson will discuss fair housing within a national context, as well as the consequences of the passage of Flint’s Open Housing Act. A community conversation will follow. Attendees are encouraged to share their perspectives, their experiences, and their questions regarding these issues of race and housing.

Delma Thomas-Jackson is an education coordinator at Wellness Services, a faculty member at the Center for Whole Communities, and a facilitator, writer, and lecturer on social justice topics.
