psc brown bag iconRace, Ethnicity, and Inequality in Charleston, South Carolina 1860-1880

Jeff Strickland (Population Studies Center, University of Michigan)

03/17/2008, at noon in room 6050 ISR-Thompson.

This presentation will link inequality and segregation to mortality in Charleston, South Carolina during the transition from slavery to freedom (1860 to 1880). Charleston had a racially and ethnically diverse population: native-born whites (southerners and northerners), European immigrants (primarily German and Irish), and African Americans (both Free People of Color and slaves in 1860). Compared to most nineteenth-century US cities, a defining characteristic of Charleston was spatial integration and interaction among these racial and ethnic groups. The presentation will use historical GIS to describe segregation patterns, and it will discuss the social demography of the city with a special emphasis on mortality.
