Advancing Racial Equity through Regenerative Place-Making
By Duron Chavis

7:30 pm Campus Center Carroll Room - Free and open to the public

The built environment of urban cities across the country bear the scars of racial inequality inherent in slavery, Jim Crow discrimination and economic marginalization. Place-making capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and wellbeing. Such transformation requires working with community residents as well as municipal, nonprofit partners and philanthropic investment in the planning, designing and implementation of community places.
