Dr. Nishani Fazier
Dr. Frazier will lecture on "Black Economic Power." The lecture will examine the foundation of Black economic development in the Congress of Racial Equality, and explain how it gave rise to the work of McKissick Sr. and Soul City, his vision for a planned community. Particular attention will be given to understanding the revolutionary elements of urban planning and cooperative economics, which inspired Soul City’s dream and design.
Part of the programming for the The Museum of Durham History exhibition "The Life and Legacy of Floyd B. McKissick, Sr."
