QUESTION: Racially Restrictive Covenants and Deeds on Long Island

question / pregunta: 

Hi,

I am finishing a documentary on housing policy in NYC and there is a section about redlining and "white flight" from the city to Long Island and South Brooklyn suburbs. I am desperately looking for visual evidence of the fact that blacks in particular were excluded from some suburban communities (levittown, for example). does anybody know where i can, on short notice, get an example of either a restrictive deed from this area, and/or some promotional material from a developer advertising the fact that a community was restricted?

i am finishing up next week for the Brooklyn Film Festival. I hate a great image i was using but realized it was from LA, not NY!

thanks for any help you can give me. this documentary is independent, muckraking and challenges bloomberg development policy. i have made other films on progressive/radical issues, like Every Mother's Son (police brutality) and Out At Work (LGBT discrimination in the workplace).

thank you!!!

QUESTION: Flipping/Inverting Classrooms in Schools

question / pregunta: 

Could you point me to some research that has been completed on:

QUESTION: tax practices of five companies

question / pregunta: 

The Occupy Boston Tax Day Working Group needs info on the tax payment history and practices of these companies:

Fidelity
State Street

QUESTION: Tax Inequality Graphs for flyers

question / pregunta: 

I need graphs for the back of flyers that will reproduce comprehensibly in BLACK AND WHITE of information illustrating how the tax code benefits the wealthy. Going the extra mile would be giving them to me in two sizes, one that would print on the back of a quarter page flyer for the 5:30 rally at Dewey Sq., Boston, MA, Occupy Boston. Topics; the carried interest loohole for hedgefund managers, hedgfund managers, compliance, taxes and prosperity under Eisenhower, tax rates on the wealthy falling during prosperous times....I hope you get the idea. The big pay off would be if you could track down a green chart that circulated on Facebook, a family budget broken down as if it were the federal tax system.

THE SOONER THE BETTER. THANKS.
