Segregated by Design is a photojournalism project created by students from New York City High Schools who took part in the 2019 United Nations International School Human Rights Project.
The project is the culmination of training in human rights, advocacy, photography, oral history, and three intensive weeks traveling throughout the city to meet with academics, community organizers and activists working to end segregation in housing, healthcare, the criminal justice system and education.
The exhibit will be on display at Photoville 2019.
In this panel, students will present their photos, and discuss the legacy of redlining and segregation in different zip codes across New York City.
