    This work was made possible with a generous grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services: "T-RACES: Tesbed for the Redlining Archives of California's Exclusionary Spaces", IMLS Award No. LG-05-06-0158.

    The work could not have been completed without the commitment of a small group of extraordinary contributors: Suzy Beemer, Shane Depner, Jennifer Wilkens, and Khai Tang.
