The 37th annual Marion Thompson Wright Lecture Series, City Moves: Black Urban History Since 1967, will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 uprisings in Newark, Detroit, and other cities by inviting a wide-ranging discussion of the past half-century of black urban history. A lineup of esteemed scholars will take stock of how far American cities have come in regaining their role as a promised land for generations of longtime residents and more recent migrants alike. This year, we have an amazing lineup of speakers including: Thomas J. Sugrue, Alondra Nelson, Mary Pattillo, and N.D.B Connolly. Admission is Free and Open to the public.
