Mapping Prejudice

Get Involved

Join us to build the map:

Join community members in a UROC Critical Conversation on the hidden history of racial covenants in Minneapolis. The discussion will center on new research showing what communities of color have known for decades—that structural barriers and legalized discrimination barred many people of color from buying property and building wealth for most of the last century.

West of Central is set in the Watts neighborhood of Low Angeles, in the aftermath of the urban unrest that roiled more than 150 American cities. The plot turns on the racist housing practices that created the highly segregated--and ultimately explosive--landscape of American cities in the 1960s. After the performance, a member of the Mapping Prejudice team will be on hand to talk about covenants, redlining and white violence created the racial disparities that we have today in Minneapolis. We look forward to talking with the audience about the connections between the past and the present. In dialogue, we are looking to explore how an awareness of history can help us build a more equitable future.

Volunteer Spotlight: Penny Petersen

Mapping Prejudice would not exist without the efforts of our volunteers. Community members volunteer their time transcribing property deeds to help build our map of racial covenants. Their contributions are essential in illuminating the history of racist housing practices, the legacies of which we are still living with today. Meet our first and most tenacious volunteer: Penny Petersen.
