Fair Housing Film
April 26, 2022
The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute was pleased to partner with The Birmingham Association of Realtors (BAR), the Birmingham Realtist Association, Barnes & Associates Realtors, Bancorp South | Cadence, and Arkadia One Studios for the premier of a short documentary film to help educate the public about housing discrimination, segregation, and the people working to correct these social and economic wrongs.
The historians at BCRI have ensured the historical validity of the documentary – an earnest affirmation to the lawmakers and legendary champions like NAREB co-founder W.H. Hollins. With the guidance of the Birmingham Association of Realtors, the Birmingham Realtist Association, and Barnes & Associates Realtors, the film offers a review of the protected classes of the Fair Housing Act, prohibited conduct, penalties, resources for compliance, and implementation.
The film includes the testimonials of homeowners, home buyers and renters of color in the Birmingham community. As partners, we feel confident that these first-hand stories of those who have experienced and are witness to housing discrimination will invoke a spirit of social justice.
BCRI will utilize this production for educational outreach that combats the housing struggle plaguing our country. The focus of this short long film will be diversity and inclusion. We will reflect on our nation’s history of housing discrimination in a documentary produced in the style of the projects found on the National Association of Realtors website.
The intended audience for our production was Realtors, lenders, homeowners, and those seeking to purchase property. The production will also be used as a resource for informing the public of the fair housing practices put in place by our government to prevent discrimination.
