America's Tomorrow: An Interactive Map of Our Nation's Future

NEW YORK, May 19, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — PolicyLink has released "The Map of America's Tomorrow," a new interactive time-lapse map showing – for the first time – the growth of people of color in America from 1990 through 2040. Census projections have long shown that people of color will soon be our nation's majority. And yet there's been no visualization of what this future will actually look like – until now.

In less than 24 hours, the map has received over 100,000 views (and counting) and has been viewed in 135 countries. Harlem Children Zone's Geoff Canada used it as the centerpiece for a presentation he gave on "How to End Poverty" at the Google Zeitgeist Festival in London this week. The Daily Beast's Andrew Sullivan has also joined in, describing the video yesterday as "The Browning of America."

"This map makes crystal clear just how dramatically the face of America is changing – and how quickly," said Angela Glover Blackwell, Founder & CEO of PolicyLink. "Already, nearly half of all young people are of color, and by 2042, people of color will become our nation's majority. Clearly, this snapshot of our future has struck a chord, leaving no doubt that we must invest in and start building the foundation of tomorrow's America today. Let's start now."

This map is the first installment of "America's Tomorrow: Equity in a Changing Nation" – a new multimedia series exploring America's changing demographics and the leaders who are making a difference.
