Event Description

We know that racially restrictive covenants were placed on residential properties in Arlington County before 1968 – what we don’t know is when they first appeared or exactly where these restricted parcels of land were located. We will take a closer look at the historical context in which racial covenants emerged and share the initial phase of our research that involves mapping these land records from 1900 to 1968.
