“Redlining Richmond” presents maps and lists of all of the assessment data collected for Richmond, Virginia, and explores how race and racism shaped the HOLC’s assessments of the city’s neighborhoods and the residential security map it produced for Virginia’s capital.
The Society for Civil War Historians held its biennial meeting in Richmond on June 17-20, which gave the DSL a chance to showcase some of its work. The plenary address, “Fighting and Freedom: United States Military Forces and the Geography of Emancipation” highlighted maps of emancipation that the DSL has produced over the last several months. We also held an open house showing a number of textual and mapping projects on the Civil War. Links to these projects will be coming soon.
