Most people are familiar with the famous 1957 Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis, but some may be less familiar with what happened after the case was finished. Professor Jay Barth of Hendrix College researched the aftermath of this event, and he was particularly curious about the long-term geospatial ramifications that played out across Pulaski County in Arkansas and the rest of the country. Working with researcher Tony Davis and Chris Stewart, Professor Barth looked at a wide range of government records to see the changes in the racial makeup of the surrounding area, along with transformations in population density, political orientation, income levels, and crime. On this site, visitors can see clips from a lecture Professor Barth gave on this research, and also look a number of time-series maps that document these various transformations after 1957 to 2007. Visitors can browse these maps at their leisure, and they may also search across the entire collection for items of interest.
