2020 Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium: Looking the Other Way: Exclusion within Pedagogy and Practice

2020 Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium: Looking the Other Way: Exclusion within Pedagogy and Practice

This event will investigate recruitment, retention, and pedagogy in architecture and urban planning education and their implications for practice. This discussion will analyze how educational institutions perpetuate narrow ideologies that do not serve underrepresented communities, which have been historically excluded or harmed from architecture and planning. Without such representation, economic, political, and social inequalities are inscribed within the built environment due to systematic and institutional discrimination.

Panelists:

Kemba Braynon, Architect and Historic Preservationist of Quinn Evans
Malik Goodwin, President & Managing Member at Goodwin Management Group, LLC, and Project Executive & COO at Ventra Group, LLC.
Anika Goss, Executive Director of Detroit Future City
Sherita Smith, Executive Director of Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation

A reception in the Art & Architecture Building Commons at 6:00pm will be followed by a panel discussion in the Auditorium (Room 2104) at 7:00pm. Please click here to RSVP.

The annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium at Taubman College is organized by a partnership of Urban Planning students and Architecture students.
