An Examination of One City as a Microcosm of a Bigger Problem in America
This is a project made in response to having been raised in a racially segregated education system. Most of my peers had the same color of skin as me and I did not really question why until I got older. My family also has a history of education and have provided resources and insights into the topic. I assumed that the results would reaffirm my assumptions about the racial and economic disparity, but I did not think it would be so obviously disparate. The correlations that I came across between race, economy, and location were unsettling and disturbing. I chose a small book format with interactive transparencies to provide a personal user experience that one can use to reflect on their own education experience. I also made a large infographic to be witnessed by more people.
