  2. Living Apart: 21st Century Segregation in Hampton Roads

    February 3, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Join Dr. Johnny Finn, Associate Professor of Geography in the Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology at C.N.U. for an exploration of “Living Together / Living Apart,” a long-term research project that focuses on the human experience and toll of persistent racial segregation in Hampton Roads. Racial segregation in most major U.S. metropolitan areas is worse today than it was during Reconstruction. This did not happen by accident, nor did it happen overnight; the origins of racial segregation in the American city are deep. A combination of discriminatory housing and economic policies, and both overt and indirect racism throughout much of the 20th century, lie at its heart. This project uses oral history interviews, historical documents, participant-directed photography, and digital mapping to engage the local community in meaningful, open ways and to challenge the “naturalness” of segregated landscapes and explore alternative futures.
