Mapping Prejudice is using geographic information systems (GIS), Optical Character Recognition, and crowdsourcing to build the first comprehensive map of racial covenants for a major American city. These covenants were used in the first half of the 20th century to prevent people who were not white from owning or occupying property. While now illegal, covenants continue to impact the racial geography of Minneapolis today and undergird many of the city's contemporary racial disparities.
