Join this week's featured author, Mabel Wilson, in our virtual book club series, “Authors and Anecdotes”, as she discusses a book she co-edited, Race and Modern Architecture.  This book will enlighten many. By exposing how modern architectural discourse and thought have been influenced quite heavily by racism, this critical and important scholarship sheds new light on the built environment. Race and Modern Architecture ultimately reveals how architecture and design have been silent partners in oppression in the United States and around the globe.
