This lecture delves into some of the least-known contributions of African American architects during the crucial period of emancipation to the end of World War II. The discourse will highlight speaker Dreck Spurlock Wilson’s editing and compiling of the book African American Architects: A Biographical Dictionary, 1865–1945, which prompts exploration of the historical influence of those who are virtually unknown in the world of architecture.
Dreck Spurlock Wilson, ASLA, NOMA is a graduate of Iowa State University and the University of Chicago. He was formerly an Associate Professor of Architectural History at Howard University and Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at Morgan State University.
