A Streetcar Suburb Transformed

Bryan Knedler and Malinda Miles, both former mayors of Mount Rainier, Maryland discuss the history and culture of their small city in Prince George's County. Mount Rainier began in the early 1900s as a streetcar suburb as working class families built businesses and homes. For decades it was a Whites-only enclave but since the 1960s, the town has evolved into a very diverse community.
