Data & Donuts: Geocoding Historical Data to Revive the Social Memory of Wheatville
Noon to 1 p.m.

Wheatville was a freedmen’s community in the area now known as West Campus. This project maps the racial demographic changes in this neighborhood from the late 1800s to the mid-twentieth century. In this workshop, we will follow the paths of several Wheatville residents to showcase the complexities of geocoding historical data, and explore how this process can revive the social memory of communities.
