Taylor Symposium honors Dr. Taylor for his many contributions to the university and the community by hosting informed discussion on issues of interest in urban America, particularly among communities of color.

INVISIBLE INDIANAPOLIS: RACE AND HERITAGE IN THE CIRCLE CITY

History is all around us—in spaces and places that appear commonplace but that conceal stories from the past.  “Invisible Indianapolis: Race and Heritage in the Circle City” explores the histories and material culture of local neighborhoods, revealing lesser-known stories of American urban life. These presentations and workshops will illustrate how Midwestern post-industrial cities like Indianapolis have been transformed by such processes as disinvestment, urban renewal, highway construction, racial and religious discrimination, and, more recently,  gentrification.
