Spurred by the death of George Floyd, York University alumna and award-winning placemaker Jay Pitter brings her work in urban planning policy and anti-Black racism to the University to create a new resource – Engaging Black People and Power.
This powerful resource, developed in a Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change (EUC) graduate-level urban planning course of the same name taught by Pitter, will launch at a virtual event on March 22. Her forthcoming books, Black Public Joy and Where We Live, will be published later this year.
The project is a homecoming for Pitter, who completed her Master in Environmental Studies (MES) degree at York and who was excited to work again with her former MES advisor Professor Anders Sandberg.
