How you created the visualization: I created the visualization in Adobe Illustrator. The dripping black fluid is meant to symbolize the veil that W.E.B. DuBois invokes repeatedly in "The Souls of Black Folks." Each "drip" is proportional to the number of students studying each educational field.
The United States educational system has long been inequitable, and my visualization is meant to connect the inequitable educational opportunities presented to Black students to DuBois' veil by highlighting how even educational opportunities are determined by one's race.
