Neily, Pietila and Gauvin to speak at Loyola

A forum on race, transportation and urban development scheduled for tomorrow night at Loyola University will include Gerald Neily, who has been regularly discussing these topics in detail on his award-winning blog, Baltimore InnerSpace, and on The Brew.

Also on the podium, as part of Loyola’s annual “Law & the City Panel,” will be Antero Pietila, author of “Not in my Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City,” and Tamika Gauvin from the Baltimore Red Line project.

If you’d like to hear a lively and informed debate about the proposed Red Line (former Baltimore city transportation planner Neily has been a relentless critic) and some no-holds-barred observations on racism’s impact on Baltimore (longtime journalist Pietila has arguably written the definitive book on this) stop in.

Elizabeth J. Kennedy, Assistant Professor  in the Law & Social Responsibility Department at at Loyola’s  Sellinger School of Business & Management, will moderate.

The event is taking place on Wednesday, February 13th from 6:30-8:00 p.m., in the 4th Floor Program Room in the Andrew White Student Center.

    •   “Ha ha, so not a surprise.” “Shocking…not!!” We get applause but also the occasional eye-roll these days for our accountability reporting – like last week’s piece about how tax cuts promised by the mayor as a selling point for Horseshoe Baltimore probably won’t happen, thanks to the casino’s lower-than-expected revenues. We get where the […]
