April 28: Antero Pietila

2010 Spring Forum
Antero Pietila : Not In My Neighborhood

Wednesday April 28, 2010 at Noon

Antero Pietila, retired Baltimore Sun editorial writer, discusses what he learned from his long career writing for the Baltimore Sun and how he saw a need to address and create rhetoric focusing on this historically problematic American city. Not in My Neighborhood explains why Baltimore is still suffering the aftereffects of long-term racial segregation and bigotry on both a city and federal level.  Mr. Pietila’s book surveys major players in the complex mix of local housing and public policy setting and offers new insights concerning personal relationships of these key actors.

As always, the Baltimore Architecture Foundation’s free noontime Forum is held at the Johns Hopkins Downtown Center, Charles and Fayette Streets. Bring a lunch.
