Event Details

Join historians Mara Cherkasky and Sarah Jane Shoenfeld of Prologue DC for a preview of Mapping Segregation’s new website, along with a panel discussion moderated by WAMU’s Sasha-Ann Simons on how Mapping Segregation helps define the intersection of race and real estate in DC’s past and present.
 
Mapping Segregation in Washington DC is a digital public history project that is documenting the historic extent of racially restricted housing in the nation's capital.
