Mapping Inequality: Redlining in New Deal America

This project will develop an expanded third version of the award-winning and widely-used Mapping Inequality project. The third version will add (1) maps and hard-to-find documents to expand the geographic reach; (2) new visualization tools to make the site's important textual resources more accessible; (3) approximately 250 city-specific contextual essays from scholars who use the site to provide closer attention to the connection between the national and the local, and (4) new curricular materials to expand the project's reach in secondary schools and universities.
