Mapping Prejudice: Examining the Complex Legacies of Racist Housing Policies
Restrictions, known as racial covenants or racially-restrictive deeds, were used in most American cities before 1968 to prevent people who were not white from buying or occupying property. The Mapping Prejudice Project is working to identify and map racial restrictions buried in historic Minneapolis property deeds.
Our speakers, Kirsten Delegard, Penny Peterson and Kevin Ehrman-Solberg will present their research into Minneapolis real estate deeds and show how provisions in those deeds were the foundation for what amounted to a hidden system of American apartheid in the twentieth century.
