For many years restrictive covenants in deeds and documents related to real estate transactions reserved land for the exclusive use of white people. Research involving academics, community  activists, and community members unearth the evidence of these practices. This allowed a map to be made showing how these restrictive practices were embedded in the physical landscape. This is a continuing project to expose the corrosive effects of structural racism.
