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).
