Digital Archive 14: Government Officials Take a Tour Through Shaw

This photo comes from an article by the Washington Post by Perry Stein. It talks about how these government officials had come to take a walk around the new and improved Shaw and see how all of the developments are coming along. The article touches on Shaw’s past, saying that it came from the 1968 riots, to what it is now. This was interesting to me because it never mentions the many years in between 1968 and 2015, where Shaw went through an extremely violent and crime ridden era.
