History --> activism

First: UW history professor James Gregory creates an online report on segregrated Seattle with his students.

Secondly: The Seattle Times reports on the issue.

Now: The Seattle Times returns with an editorial asking the state Legislature to expunge the remaining racial convenants.

Future? We'll see, but I have to think that people will pay attention to the biggest paper in the Northwest.

The point: historical study can and often does lead to action in the present.
