Presented here is one of four videos, Economic Development in the Richmond Region, from the Richmond Peace Education Center's project, Richmond, Race and Regionalism.
This project grew out of the first Racial Justice Discussion Series conducted by the Richmond Peace Education Center. It was inspired by a presentation by Dr. John Moeser, professor emeritus of Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Urban Studies and Planning and Senior Fellow at the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement at the University of Richmond. Appalled by the regional problems highlighted by Dr. Moeser’s research, an independent group of volunteers came together to develop a vehicle for disseminating information and promoting discussion. Led by Renee Hill, Professor of Philosophy at Virginia State University, and Charol Shakeshaft, Professor of Educational Leadership at the VCU School of Education, they gathered archival photographs, interviewed fellow citizens, read books and articles, and compiled a vast amount of information which has been distilled down into videos in four main areas: Education, Transportation, Housing, and Economic Development. They asked the Richmond Peace Education Center to house and distribute the videos.
