04/30/2016: Mapping Inequality Team Presents on Baltimore

Our Mapping Inequality team at the Digital Curation Innovation Center  hosted an open house and presented on their their Baltimore project on Saturday, April 30th during the Maryland Day celebration in College Park, MD. Families learned about the history of redlining in Baltimore and the resources available on their website and map interface. Visitors accessed archival documents from the Home Owners Loan Corporation, and explored how housing policies have impacted the neighborhoods of Baltimore through the 20th century. The team discussed how this story is essential understanding the inequities and racial tensions in Baltimore today.
