Race & Space: The Community

North Carolina State University's integration was both a reflection of and an answer to strict segregation practices in the greater Raleigh community. Each dot represents the NC State Good Neighbor Council's role in addressing racial inequality on and off campus from 1967-1979. An organization compossed of 16 NC State students and faculty, the Good Neighbor Council was initially concerned with everyday physical and social limitatations placed on black students and faculty. The organization later evolved into a human relations and social justice group devoted to the development of city-wide racial dialogues. The map reflects the Good Neighbor Council's mission.
