Thanks for publishing my photographs, UrbanTurf_DC, in this wonderful profile of the Shaw neighborhood, in Washington, DC.
Iâ€™ve written a few posts myself about the neighborhood – more history (and leadership) per square millimeter than any place Iâ€™ve ever been to:
- Thoughts and photos from the gilded ghetto | Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City, by Derek Hyra
- The future of LGBTQ rights was born here, too: Vermont Avenue and the Death of Tyra Hunter
- When Church meetings Became Street Protests: Vermont Avenue and the Era of Civil Rights, Washington, DC, USA
In the meantime, enjoy the photographs selected by the Urban Turf team.
Historic preservation, eclectic restaurants, high-end real estateâ€”welcome to a Shaw thatâ€™s wildly different from the neighborhood we profiled eight years ago.
