11 This peculiar residential pattern was due in part to the custom of building slaves’ and servants’ quarters in back of the master’s house. Jim Crow segregation in New Orleans adopted this spatial design, and there was very little pressure to change it until the black freedom movement of the 1960s. As black communities began to question the norms and laws of Jim Crow in the middle of the twentieth century, this type of segregation had begun to give way to large contiguous areas within the city populated by blacks at rates approaching 80 to 90 percent.

Claude Avenue’s four lanes and a median. 13 This is spatial segregation on the local level, and it is characteristic of the larger pattern that can be discerned at the citywide level. For the first half of the eighteenth century, St. Bernard Parish was a French colony (as was all of Louisiana). Planters established themselves on the high ground near the banks of the Mississippi and used African slaves to raise sugarcane and indigo in the rich soils deposited over several millennia of delta building.

However, the overall costs outweighed the benefits. White racism was rearticulated in new forms during and after the civil rights movement. Across much of America, geographical segregation that created powerfully different life chances became a paramount means of maintaining the racial hierarchy that had previously been constructed through other less spatially deterministic forms. ”15 The socio-political ecology resulting from the push for racial integration and reactionary suburbanization (propelled by the white population’s possessive investment in whiteness that promised a maintenance of privilege in the suburbs) built a cityscape under sea level, surrounded by a maelstrom for a river on one side, lakes to the north, and rapidly disappearing marshes to the south and southeast.
