George Derek Musgrove, Associate Professor of History, engaged the Imaging Research Center in early 2019 to help him improve upon and sustain a website exploring the history of Black Power organizing in Washington D.C. His goal was to represent the evolution of this influential social movement over space and time through geographic maps, historical photographs and text. The project builds from his book, Chocolate City: A History of Race and Democracy in the Nation’s Capital, co-authored with Chris Myers Asch and published in 2017. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the site today, February 1, 2021!
Please visit Black Power in DC to see this rich and informative visual storytelling project.
And...mark your calendars:Join us for a Webex discussion with the author about this exciting digital humanities project, on Thursday, February 25th at 12pm.
More on this event, soon!
