A new mural honoring W.E.B. DuBois on the wall of a fire station at Sixth and South streets. The project was spurred by Amy Hillier SW’97 GrS’01, assistant professor at PennDesign and research associate professor in the School of Social Policy & Practice. DuBois’s pathbreaking volume The Philadelphia Negro (1899) emerged from work he did while affiliated with Penn.
