SEPTEMBER 27 / 5:00 PM / DUC 276 / FREE

This AMCS Panel Discussion engages Bob Hansman’s recently published book in the Images of America series, Pruitt-Igoe (Arcadia, 2017). Pruitt-Igoe is an innovative photo essay focused on a central site of mid-20th-century African American and American life, death, and creative struggle. It features a host of never-before-seen images of everyday existence at Pruitt-Igoe. Through these images, it narrates a complex history, and more important, it attempts to do justice to its historical subjects, members of our community, for whom the past is not dead, it’s not even past.
