Event Description
This conference has been organized to address social justice from the perspective of design, emphasizing the importance of compassion in the design ethos, and with the goal of recognizing the contributions of African descendants to the design field and, by so doing, to broaden the definition of the designer. A series of conversations including students, faculty, and invited guests will consider design at the scale of the building, neighborhood, city, region, and globe. With Maurice Cox, Kimberly Driggins, Sonja Dümpelmann, Sherry Franklin, Phil Freelon, Toni Griffin, Jeanine Hays, Michael Hays, Seitu Jones, Frank C. Lee, Bryan Mason, Mitch McEwen, Justin Garrett Moore, Liz Ogbu, Fred Opie, Euneika Rogers-Sipp, Deanna Van Buren, Camilo José Vergara, Amber N. Wiley, Craig L. Wilkins, and others. Organized by the Harvard GSD African American Student Union with support from the Joint Center for Housing Studies, Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, Loeb Fellowship at Harvard GSD, the Dean's Diversity Initiative at Harvard GSD, and H-OAP
