Some important notes about this map:

Please note this project is a work in progress and highlights only local redress examples in the South Atlantic. For our pilot, the South Atlantic region was purposefully selected to demonstrate the breadth and depth of historical wrongdoings in a region other than the “deep South.” We used the geographic regions as outlined by the U.S. Census Bureau. This includes the states of Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Commonwealth of Virginia and West Virginia. You can explore specific historical injustices, historical eras, reparations and individual states by clicking the filter at the top right of the map. Historical Eras were loosely defined based on those used by the Library of Congress and the Jim Crow Museum, MI. Please go to Why Choose a Human Rights Framework to learn how we determined the type of reparations for each locality. Please go to The Stories to hear the voices of those wronged who are working towards justice.
