Slave Streets, Free Streets: Visualizing the Landscape of Early Baltimore

One of the projects I worked on while Associate Director of the Imaging Research Center at UMBC–actually the project I worked on the most– was expanding on the fantastic BEARINGS of Baltimore. I concentrated on the lives of free blacks and enslaved workers, culminating in Slave Streets, Free Streets. Two recent articles about the project are:


“Slave Streets, Free Streets: Visualizing the Landscape of Early Baltimore.” Current Research in Digital History 4 (2021).

“Accuracy and Authenticity in a Digital City.” Perspectives on History, November 2020.
