The Minneapolis Uprising

Since George Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis police, the Mapping Prejudice Project has attracted media attention from around the world. The project has helped people understand why a global civil rights movement started in Minneapolis. It has illuminated the structural racism of a city long known for its progressive politics and pointed the way forward in this moment of historic reckoning.
