Robert Clifton Weaver and the American City

past event


Wendell E. Pritchett, Professor of Law and Penn IUR Faculty Associate, signed and discussed his new book on the first United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the first African American cabinet member in US history  (published by The University of Chicago Press). William Julius Wilson says, “Pritchett brilliantly captures the life and contributions of this great racial pioneer and in the process reveals how racial tensions profoundly influenced battles over the future of American cities.”
