Todd Michney, assistant professor in the School of History and Sociology, published an op-ed titled "Historian: Savannah's and Cuyler-Brownville's Peculiar Place in the History of Redlining" in the Savannah Morning News.

In it, Michney explores an anomaly he discovered during his redlining research in Savannah: "The only known Black neighborhood in the country that HOLC evaluators, working in the depths of the Great Depression, did not downgrade on the basis of race."
