From the Spring issue of Pennsylvania History: A Journal of Mid-Atlantic Studies, the Pennsylvania Historical Association proudly presents Dan Holland’s “Forging a Consistent Vision: The People Who Shaped Manchester’s Renewal, 1964-2014.” Holland, who hails from the University of Pittsburgh, writes in his article that the African American neighborhood of Manchester in the North Side of Pittsburgh has undergone many changes in the past half century. He argues that the forces at work made Manchester a prime example for other neighborhoods to follow. The article can be found online on JSTOR in addition to the physical journal.
