Home is not a House: A History of Housing Security and Homelessness in Louisville
Main Library | Bernheim Gallery | October 14 - December 1, 2019
Gallery Reception: Saturday, October 26, 3-4:30pm • Free and open to the public
Home is much more than mere shelter; it provides a sense of self and establishes community while also informing access and opportunity. From a history of poverty and assistance to shanty boats and alternative housing to public housing and segregation, this exhibit serves as a starting point to understanding the complex relationships and processes that have shaped how Louisvillians struggle to create home.
Presented by the University of Louisville Department of History, The Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, UofL Archives and Special Collections, and the Louisville Free Public Library, with contributions from the Ball and Drag Scene Strength and Needs Assessment Project, University of Louisville Kent School of Social Work
