Social Sciences Forum
Antero Pietila, Journalist and Author
Thursday, October 13, 7 p.m.
University Center Ballroom
In Antero Pietila’s book Not in My Neighborhood, Baltimore is the setting for one of the most penetrating examinations of bigotry and residential segregation ever published in the United States. Pietila will discuss Baltimore’s history, from its early suburbanization in the 1880s to the consequences of “white flight” after World War II, and into the first decade of the twenty-first century, and how it parallels the complicated histories of other American cities.
This event is free and open to the public.
