Map: Integrated Voting Attitudes 1969

bunge_vote_integration_1969

This map was a part of the Detroit Geographical Expedition Institute’s Field Notes II on school decentralization. The argument this map portrayed was that idea that the opposite of racist was integrationist. DGEI found that the school board was placing all the power in the hands of those with racist attitudes. The totally white areas of the city represented increased racist attitudes in voting. The other part of DGEI’s argument was geographic proximity of people of different races along with their voting attitudes.
