Description


Antero Pietila shows how one man's wealth shaped and reshaped a city long after his life, from the destruction of neighborhoods to make way for the dominating buildings in Baltimore's downtown to the role that Johns Hopkins University played in government sponsored "Negro Removal" causing the city's existing racial patchwork.
