History of White Flight in Dayton
This presentation will examine the causes and consequences of white flight in Dayton during and following the Civil Rights Era. Drawing on Facing Project Narratives from residents of the Dayton area and social science literature, this poster will highlight the history of the white flight movement in Dayton, Ohio. The poster will help viewers understand the effects of white flight and other forms of discrimination and segregation on the city of Dayton at the time the events were taking place (throughout the 1900’s) and the issues that remain today. I will present information on the social impact of white flight and discriminatory practices on the Dayton community and will explain some of the ways that the city is attempting to address these problems.
