The Sociology program at Marymount University has embarked on a research project that explores the social, political, and economic forces that have shaped life for various communities that make up the DMV. With a particular focus on African-American communities, Place Matters examines the impacts of historical state and federal policies like Red-lining and Racial Housing Covenants have had on settlement patterns of African-Americans across the region. Other aspects of the project focus on community change (gentrification) and the contemporary effects of residential and commercial displacement. The goal is to better understand the effects these phenomena can have on wealth-building and equitable development in communities of color around the region.
