Mapping Segregation in Montgomery County

Members of the Montgomery County Historic Preservation Office present their ongoing project to map historical patterns of segregation in Montgomery County. The first phase of the project documented racial covenants in the Downcounty area, including Takoma Park, with a GIS interactive map. Come hear about racial covenants and the continuing work to understand the history of racial segregation in Montgomery County. This is a free event but we request a donation to support the work of Historic Takoma.

Please register in advance.
