Description

This is a brochure created by the Bloomingdale Civic Association that describes the social and architectural history of the Bloomingdales neighborhood. Its primary structure is a timeline composed through the compilation of data from history books, photographs, newspapers, and DC government publications. The timeline emphasizes demographic and cultural shifts in the neighborhood, especially the introduction and institutionalization of segregation in the neighborhood as a result of racist housing covenants from about the 1890s until the end of World War II. Subsequent decades show the end of housing covenants, city desegregation efforts, and the increasing economic decline of the neighborhood until a revival period starting in the 2000s.
