As the site of major political battles over slavery, segregation, civil rights, the drug war, gentrification, and more, Washington D.C. has a central role in the national story. From its origins as part of a plantation society to its status as the nation’s first black-majority city and its current lack of full political rights, the District also has its own distinctive history. In this comprehensive look at both the representative and the unique D.C., Asch and Musgrove, respectively editor of Washington History and an associate professor of history at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, tell both stories, unfolding an illuminating dual perspective on race and democracy.
