The Maps of Black Folk: (Dis)Empowering Color Symbologies

Maps have influenced the environmental, economic and political fortunes of persons of African descent in the past and will continue to do so in the future when political practices like gerrymandering are accounted for.

This event examines the roles maps play in shaping American society and highlights how their power can be harnessed to advance professional careers.  The program will feature project demonstrations from faculty and students from Tennessee State University's Geographic Information Sciences Laboratory through a virtual link.
