Photo Friday & Thanks for publishing my photo, DCist, in Morning Roundup
Thanks for publishing my selection for this week’s photo Friday, @DCist. It was taken in the Shaw Neighborhood in Washington, DC, where a dog park, a soccer field, a basketball court, and a skateboard park all co-exist, together, and separately. It’s an example given of micro-segration in Derek Hyra’s (@DerekHyra) book Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.
I’m going to post on the book soon – before I did that I wanted to walk around and see if I saw what the author saw. Some of it, I do, and it makes me think, which is what scholarly works should do. Especially ones about places I love.
