In 1966, the city of Athens, Georgia, used eminent domain to evict residents of the Black neighborhood of Linnentown so the University of Georgia could build three new student dormitories, pictured here. Former residents of Linnentown demanded and won a plan by local government to set aside money for public projects of their choosing as a form of reparations.
