Join us for a presentation and Q&A with Professor Lou Turner (Urban and Regional Planning) on the Hal Baron Project and what Baron's work can teach us about the current moment. Register to attend.

 

This project engages the work of Harold (“Hal”) M. Baron (1930-2017), former Director of Research for the Chicago Urban League (1962-1968) and, later, public policy architect of the historic mayoral campaign of Harold Washington, followed by a tenure as the Chief Policy Advisor for the Washington administration. Harold Baron initiated and influenced key struggles against institutional racism and economic inequality. At the core of this project are two unpublished manuscripts, and the development of website and digital content platforms to serve as a portal to Hal Baron’s legacy.
