Time for Truth and Reconciliation in Montgomery County

Does “quiet philanthropy” in Montgomery County erase decades of loud racism that denied African Americans homes, wealth, and opportunities?

Quiet Philanthropy

“A few examples of Gudelsky Family’s ‘Quiet Philanthropy’ serving Downtown Silver Spring” — October 2017 proposal to Montgomery County government.


Loud Racism

“No person of any race other than the Caucasian race shall use or occupy any lot or any building, except that this covenant shall not prevent occupancy by a domestic servant of a different race domiciled with an owner or tenant.” — March 1947 by Martha Gudelsky and & other members of the Gudelsky family.
