What makes a neighborhood a neighborhood? How do we visually preserve and interpret the histories of a city's neighborhood? This summer, a group of undergraduate researchers and two faculty members examined UMBC’s Special Collections’ vast holdings of photography, focusing specifically on materials related to the 1975-1976 East Baltimore Documentary Photography Project. The team explored various themes including identity, community, and urban transformation. Join members of this group for a discussion about doing history in public.
