Abstract

With the 1990’s redistricting efforts, North Carolina again becomes a test case for both executive and judicial review of its congressional and state legislative redistricting efforts. Due to U.S. Department of Justice oversight, North Carolina creates a majority-minority district that becomes the centerpiece of litigation over racial gerrymandering and elevates the legal and political tensions between White and Black North Carolinians over district lines. North Carolina’s redistricting culminates in the U.S. Supreme Court’s Shaw decision.
