Minorities are now the majority in St. Paul, census shows – Twin Cities.

 

The most spatially precise U. This collection is set to grow substantially in the next few years as NHGIS adds new census block data and as we continue with a major initiative to construct and block boundary files. This expansion will open up new possibilities for high-precision spatial analysis across a longer time span.

To demonstrate some of the potential value of this expanding collection, we use NHGIS block data, including some not-yet-released block boundaries, to explore the recent history of racial segregation and integration in the Black population of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, from to The block-level changes since show a striking trend toward greater dispersion and integration of Black residents, but segregation persists; several neighborhoods still have uniformly low or high proportions of Black residents.

By overlaying racial covenants and HOLC zones with the block data, we can also find cases where the historical discriminatory practices appear to have left a lasting imprint on the distribution of Black residents. For much of the 20th century, private property covenants, zoning laws, and federal policy shaped spatial segregation patterns throughout the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area.

Two key types of policies are likely to have significantly contributed to the racial segregation that persists in the Twin Cities: racial covenants and federal mortgage-risk zoning. The program was developed to stabilize housing markets.

The HOLC created residential maps that graded the risk of lending to specific neighborhoods in over metropolitan areas across the country. The racial composition of neighborhoods was a major factor in zone classifications.

Redlining and racial covenants were supported by law and worked together, both directly and indirectly, to restrict where Black residents could live in the Twin Cities. The Minnesota Legislature prohibited the use of racial covenants in whereas open redlining was not made illegal until the s. To open the interactive map, click on the image below. The initial view shows the percentage of the Black population by block , in shades from light yellow to dark blue, for both Minneapolis and St.

This view also shows dark gray outlines around properties that had racial covenants. The covenant data, provided by the Mapping Prejudice project, are limited to Hennepin County, which includes Minneapolis and some of its suburbs, but not St. The first icon opens a map legend. The second icon opens a map layer list, providing the option to select which layers are shown. The ordering of layers in the list corresponds to the drawing order; a layer higher in the list will be drawn over the top of any lower layers.

The layer list includes block-level percentages of Black residents for each census year from to The newly constructed boundaries are not yet publicly available. Using the layer swiping with different combinations of block layers is a good way to examine how the distribution of Black residents has changed over time. The image below also provides an overview. In , three relatively small areas had large concentrations of Black residents: the Near North and Southside neighborhoods of Minneapolis and the Rondo neighborhood of St.

In the years since, the percentage of Black residents in these neighborhoods declined somewhat as other groups moved into these areas. Elsewhere, many other neighborhoods saw increases in their Black population, especially in North Minneapolis, from the Near North neighborhood up to the city limits; north and east from the Southside; and north and east from the Rondo neighborhood. This general trend toward greater dispersion and integration did not penetrate all areas of the cities. The maps show that there were several sections of the cities where nearly all blocks had low rates of Black residents throughout this period, particularly around the lakes of South Minneapolis and throughout much of southwestern and northwestern Saint Paul.

To what extent might these segregation patterns reflect the continuing effects of the discriminatory covenants and zoning of the past? Since there are many forces that may contribute to persistent segregation, the data presented here do not by themselves allow us to distinguish the significance of the various factors or prove causal linkages.. But the fine-grained spatial detail of block-level data enables us to identify some potential lasting effects based on how block-level racial composition corresponds to the exact boundaries of racial covenants and HOLC zones.

By aggregating the block data, we determined the Black population of each historical HOLC zone in census years from to While the proportion of Black residents grew by little more than 1 percentage point in A-graded zones and by 6 points in B-graded zones, it grew by 15 percentage points in C-graded zones and 17 points in D-graded zones. The ratio between the percentages in D and A zones also grew from 5. These growing discrepancies may or may not be causally linked to the creation and use of HOLC zones, but there has clearly been substantial persistence—and apparently some amplification—of the neighborhood distinctions that the zones were intended to delineate.

Examining spatial relationships between Black residents and racial covenants similarly produces no hard evidence for causal relationships. More commonly, however, the areas with high concentrations of covenants continued to have low proportions of Black residents through to In one case in the Nokomis area of South Minneapolis, illustrated above, the contours of the racial distribution continued to reflect the sharp boundaries of historical covenants for the entire study period.

In all census years from through , the blocks immediately to the north and west of this intersection had substantial proportions of Black residents, but in nearly all blocks to the southeast, the proportions of Black residents remained very low. The covenants here no longer have any legal standing, but the block-level racial distribution at least suggests that their influence lingers on.

As NHGIS publishes and block boundary data in the coming years, we anticipate the research community will find them a key resource for studying fine-grained spatial dynamics in urban population and housing.

Our case study shows that, in conjunction with new data resources provided by the Mapping Prejudice and Mapping Inequality projects, historical block-level data can be especially valuable for investigating long-term trends in racial segregation and the effects of discriminatory housing policies. We look forward to seeing more research using these resources. Due to swapping, some blocks that had no Black residents may appear to have some, or vice versa.
