Map: Detroit Racial Divide 2000


Likely one of the best known maps of Detroit, this map created by Eric Fischer as part of his “Race and Ethnicity 2010” series representing one dot for a group of 25 people of the same race shows the deep racial divides in Detroit metro area. Hamtramck stands out as a diverse island in the middle of Detroit, but otherwise there is s sharp line at 8 Mile, the City’s northern border.
