In conjunction with the upcoming exhibition Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America at The Museum of Modern Art, join us for a two-part public event, a conversation with Dean Milton S. F. Curry and the exhibition organizers, followed by a presentation and discussion with the exhibitors. The event will highlight ongoing research that comments on and questions how gentrification and displacement, industry, technology, and other forces affect African Americans and People of Color in the built environment. This program is presented in collaboration with the USC School of Architecture.
