SAVE THE DATE…

Please join us next Friday, March 20 at 2:00 p.m. for a lecture featuring Amy Hillier, PhD, Department of City and Regional Planning, University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Hillier’s talk is titled “The Ward: Race and Class in Du Bois’ 7th Ward.” The Ward is a 10-year-old teaching, public history, and outreach project based on Du Bois’ 1899 book, The Philadelphia Negro.
