Systemic racism is often so subtle that it's hard to detect it in the aggregate. That's why the visuals of Mapping Segregation in Washington DC are so fascinating.
Systemic racism is often so subtle that it’s hard to detect it in the aggregate. That’s why the visuals of Mapping Segregation in Washington DC are so fascinating. Buy using maps and decade-by-decade overlays, this project brings to living color how racism through the decades shaped our city and still impacts our daily lives. Historic Chevy Chase DC and Northwest Neighbors Village are teaming up to host an exciting Zoom seminar on Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. featuring Mara Cherkasky of Prologue DC who is co-creator of the mapping project (mappingsegregationdc.org). HCCDC President Carl Lankowski will engage Cherkasky in a conversation about the project and invite volunteers to actually be part of the historical research by conducting online searches. A follow-up online tutorial will be held for anyone interested in dedicating a couple of hours to this important work. Registration for the event here.
