Black Suburbia:

 

Documents residential, racial segregation

 
2015. Maps for the exhibit “Black Suburbia: From Levittown to Ferguson” at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. The poster-sized maps frame the exhibit’s exploration of African American suburban experience and residential segregation from 1960 to today. I compiled historical race and household tenure data for three American suburbs and designed the maps in collaboration with exhibit designers.
