Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME) presents Mapping RVA: Where You Live Makes All the Difference, a multimedia exhibition of nine maps created using geographic information systems to display a unique history of the Richmond metro area. In this iteration of the traveling exhibit, maps from the Library of Virginia's holdings will be presented alongside the maps created by HOME's director of research, Brian Koziol. The current circumstances of Richmond's neighborhoods have roots in state and federal policies that have had lasting effects on concentrations of poverty and growth, lending patterns, homeownership, and educational outcomes for children.
