Peace and Justice Education Event: How I-95 Disrupted Inner-City Wilmington Neighborhoods
January 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Thursday, January 19
7 p.m. on Zoom
With Dr. Nina David, Associate Professor in Biden School, University of Delaware
As we continue to explore the role of I-95 in this community, Dr. David, an architect and environmental planner, will give a presentation of the history of the planning, development, and impact of Interstate 95 in the City of Wilmington. Using archival research and interviews with former residents of the Jackson-Adams and Maryland Avenue neighborhoods, this presentation will tell the story of the policymaking that led to the current location of Interstate 95, and the people and places impacted along the way. In particular, the notable architecture, businesses and cultural institutions, and community life of neighborhoods that were uprooted to make way for the Interstate. Hosted by Westminster’s Peace & Justice Work Group.
