[SOLVED] Need help for geography reflection paper

Maps are a way that we can interpret urban experiences. Maps have been traditionally used to bound space, to graph the earth and create boundaries between cities, states, nations, etc.. As we will see in this class, red lining maps were used to assign which racial groups could live in a particular area. Maps can therefore be tools for the reproduction of social wealth and hierarchies. However, they can also be used to tell alternative stories of urban experiences and can be mobilized for social justice purposes. In this assignment I ask you to explore one of these maps and write about how it exposes key themes in the class. Tell me about the maps and how you experienced them. Also detail the kinds of alternative pasts and futures that the maps expose.
