This course provides a history of Raleigh’s Black neighborhoods that were created between 1858 and the turn of the 20th century. We will explore why they were placed where they were and how that affected today’s urban planning. Black people have been predominantly situated in Southeast Raleigh-- we will consider what fundamental issues have been caused and their affects on life for many Black people in Raleigh today. Additional focus will be given to gentrification, economic differences in community treatment and affordable housing.
