After viewing the documentary, Jim Crow of the North, please discuss the following and other issues raised that relate to material in Conley, chapters 9 and 10.
How does the documentary argue that restrictive housing covenants acted to create a “Jim Crow of the North”? Who was responsible for the restrictive covenants? What actions did prospective homeowners (and their advocates) take when faced with such barriers to a home purchase? The speakers describe effects not only on those directly targeted by the covenants—African Americans primarily, but also Jews, Asians, and other minority groups—but also effects on whites. What were those?
What have been the enduring effects of these discriminatory housing practices? Other issues raised in the documentary that relate to topics addressed by Conley.

The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
