Mapping DC’s Latino History & Affordable Housing | La Historia de los Latinos y la Vivienda de bajo costo en el Distrito

During the summer of 2015, Hola Cultura put together a team of local high school and college students to examine the history of Washington D.C.’s Latino community and the role housing costs have played, and continue to play, in where the community has settled. Led by our staff and University of Maryland Professors Ana Patricia Rodriguez and Ronald Luna, these young investigators recorded oral histories with longtime residents and mapped D.C.’s Latino community.

Their work culminated in a special presentation at the GALA Hispanic Theatre in July 2015 and a four-day special issue of this website. Below you will find links to the articles, interviews, maps, and photos originally published in September 2015.
