Our goal is to develop web-based Boston-centric interactive content on themes related to environmental racism. The first two themes are focused on housing and consumer products. Narratives informing this project are historic and current perspectives, segregation in Boston, racism in the private housing market (e.g., redlining, GI Bill, leases and/or restrictive covenants), racism in the public housing market, and federal policy. We are developing content in the form of maps, videos, interviews, and other resources to provide an engaging platform to highlight key narratives.
More information coming soon.
