Mapping Prejudice: Visualizing Structural Racism in the Urban Landscape


The Mapping Prejudice project is using GIS, optical character recognition, and crowdsourcing to build spatial databases of racial covenants for Minneapolis and other American cities. These covenants were used in the 19th and 20th centuries to prevent people who were not white from owning or occupying property. While now illegal, covenants continue to impact the racial geography of cities across the United States today and undergird many of our contemporary racial disparities. This talk will feature an overview of the methods used to build Mapping Prejudice and how researchers are beginning to use those methods to map and understand the impact of racial covenants in Milwaukee.

Registration for Mapping Prejudice has closed. If you have questions about registration, please contact Ann Hanlon, hanlon@uwm.edu
