(FROM THE ARTICLE: Black pop. in Black neighborhoods: 64.3% (994,372) Black population: 16.3% (1,546,992) Black poverty rate: 24.4% (375,073) White poverty rate: 8.1% (496,332) Like in many Midwestern cities, government officials and property owners in Chicago used discriminatory zoning practices and racially restrictive housing covenants to exclude Black residents from certain neighborhoods in the 20th century. Property in as much as 80% of the city was bound by restrictive covenants by 1927, with Black residents mostly limited to an area known as the “Black Belt” in South Side Chicago. Today, 64.3% of Chicago’s 1.5 million Black residents live in majority-Black neighborhoods, many in the South Side.
