The Mapping Racism and Resistance project examines the critical role of racial covenants, as they worked together with other anti-Black housing practices, in restricting access to housing and producing racial segregation in Milwaukee County. Our research is also centered on uncovering the challenges made by Black Milwaukeeans in response to racial covenants. Drawing from this work, I consider housing as racialized property and the ways in which property and race are mutually articulated through the dialectics of (dis)possession and struggle.
