Housing Summit Luncheon Discussion with Dr. Mindy Thompson Fullilove

11-10-2016 at 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Dr. Fullilove’s book Root Shock vividly describes the traumatic emotional reaction experienced by residents whose lives are disrupted by environmental devastation and urban development in their neighborhoods.  Dr. Fullilove has conducted research in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, particularly on the impact of urban renewal on residents, including the bulldozing of the lower hill to build the Civic Arena.  A new edition of Root Shock has been released.
