Since the fall of 2006 a number of Towson University students concentrating in the discipline of anthropology have been part of a civic engagement and service-learning project focusing on an historic African-American community in Baltimore. While the focus of the research project concentrates on the processes of gentrification, individual student outputs center on a variety of topics that detail the history of the community and the contemporary efforts of residents toward urban sustainability.
