Local Stories Of SEgregation

The Redress Movement’s StoryMaps, designed by our in-house Research Team, provide detailed stories of segregation in Denver, Milwaukee, and Charlotte – from Jim Crow to now. Our Research Team has created these Local Stories of Segregation to illustrate how segregation reflects a collective series of actions taken by various levels of government, real estate professionals, private businesses, and individuals over decades. Though many of us may be familiar with the federal government’s relationship to segregation,Our Local Stories of Segregation tell the stories of the real people and places directly impacted by discriminatory policies and practices of segregation as they occurred on the ground.

We’re confident these Local Stories of Segregation will be groundbreaking to the national conversation around racial segregation, and will mobilize citizens, neighbors, and activists to join The Redress Movement’s on-the-ground organizing efforts.
