Cape St. Claire Improvement Association board members are working to remove racially discriminatory language from covenants that date back to the 1940s.

The paragraph in question reads: “At no time shall any lot or any part thereof be sold, leased, transferred to or permitted to be occupied by any Negro, Chinaman, Japanese, or person of Negro, Chinese, or Japanese descent. This restriction is not intended to include servants or employees of the owner or occupant of said lot.”
