This blog is dedicated to updates on the research project, Mapping the DuBois Philadelphia Negro. This project is being funded by the University of Pennsylvania Research Foundation and National Endowment for Humanities and is based out of Penn’s School of Design. Our goal is to recreate the foot survey W.E.B. DuBois conducted for his 1899 classic, The Philadelphia Negro, using GIS. Eventually, we will develop a website with interactive mapping, research results, and teaching materials.
