Write a short description of your neighborhood from your own perspective (see syllabus: this is one of your short writing assignments and counts as one of your weekly posts). What does your neighborhood look like, smell like, sound like? What does your house look like? How big is your room? Do you have a backyard? How long have you lived there? Please use as many adjectives as possible. Please use as much detail as possible. Think creatively. Help us to “see” your home.
After you have done this, please locate your neighborhood on the Seattle Civil Rights webpage. What is the specific legacy of your neighborhood when it comes to segregation?
