Anne Bonds, associate professor, UWM Department of Geography, and Derek Handley, assistant professor, UWM Department of English, will discuss their project, Mapping Racism and Resistance in Milwaukee County, about the history and impact of racist language in real estate covenants in Milwaukee, and how that research takes shape using tools like digitization, OCR, and mapping to surface patterns of racism embedded in where we live, as well as the ways that Black organizations articulated their claims for racial and spatial justice.
