In 2012, Lawrence Lanahan led a team here at WYPR that explored racial inequity in the Baltimore region in a year-long radio and multi-media series called The Lines Between Us. Lanahan has just published a book in which he continues his examination of the effects of racial bias in housing, education, and economic opportunity by chronicling the journeys of an African American family who moves from the city to Howard County, and a white family who moves from the suburbs to West Baltimore. It’s called The Lines Between Us: Two Families and a Quest to Cross Baltimore’s Racial Divide (published by The New Press).
