Development of a prototype for a multimedia website exploring the social and economic effects of deindustrialization in Gary, Indiana, and the surrounding region.

Flight Paths: Mapping Our Changing Neighborhoods is a multi-media initiative analyzing factors that contribute to the fracturing of urban neighborhoods, communities, and regions in post-industrial America. It documents the changing racial and economic demographics of Gary and Northwest Indiana, including the rise of black political power and opportunity in the ‘60s and '70s, the flight of white residents and businesses to the suburbs, and the automation and underemployment of the steel mills. The website will animate migration of residents over time and host a curated portion of historical materials and professionally edited interviews (residents and scholars) within an interactive map of Northwest Indiana. Public media, curriculum, community forums and exhibitions will draw participants more deeply into the ongoing impact of the urban crisis and the interconnected nature of regional life. Through our partners, the project can reach over 1/2 million participants in a five-year period.
