African American Architects: Embracing Culture and Building Urban Communities
By Melvin L. Mitchell
Mitchell argues that the centerpiece of a new "architecture" must realign with the needs of Black America for major increases in home and business ownership and wealth creation. That requires a massive "Buy the Block"-type redevelopment in urban Black America. Today that must entail nothing short of the literal building of at least one million new affordable housing units in urban Black America by Black America between now and 2030. The means to accomplish such a moon shot are there in existing and emerging progressive legislation.
