Exploring her new neighborhood after moving to Baltimore in 2021, anthropologist Linda Rabben noticed numerous stained-glass windows in houses, churches and public buildings.  On-the-ground and archival research in the city and suburbs inspired her to write about the connections between decorative art elements in the built environment and Baltimore's long history of racial, ethnic and religious segregation.

Linda Rabben is an associate research professor of anthropology at the University of Maryland.  She is the author of Sanctuary and Asylum:  A Social and Political HistoryMy Brazil:  Reports from the Interior;  Journeywoman:  A Writer's Story; and other books and articles on human rights and related subjects.
