The DC Line: New website maps out history of housing segregation in DC

The DC Line: New website maps out history of housing segregation in DC. “A new website, Mapping Segregation, seeks to illuminate DC’s history of racially restrictive housing covenants from the last century that continue to define the city’s segregation patterns today. The site is the brainchild of DC historians Mara Cherkasky and Sarah Shoenfeld, founders of Prologue DC, a private historical research firm. They started the mapping project in 2014, and officially debuted their website at an Oct. 24 event at The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum.”
