Rise and Fall of Jim Crow: Interactive Maps

PBS usesĀ Interactive Maps as part of their Rise and Fall of Jim Crow project that add a geographic element to their overall project around the history of segregation. This project from 2002, done in Flash, shows how a number of maps can work together to expand a broader narrative, and also how time can be integrated into maps.

  1. Dear PBS,
    I am so profoundly disappointed that you have chosen to retire this website. It has had such a positive affect on my Jr. High school students and I thought that I would be using it as a reaching tool for many years to come.

    Do you have a recommendation as to another site with similar interactive tools as i have been unable to find one?

    Thank you,

  2. Dear PBS,

    Can you please bring this site back? It served as a useful visual tool for Title VII trainings.

    Thank you.
