UPenn professor Amy Hillier works with Haverford College students to resuscitate a seminal study of race relations: W.E.B. Du Bois’ 1899 book, The Philadelphia Negro.

“We don’t expect PBS to pick up [the documentary], but we’re proud of its quality,” says Hillier.

With continued help from Haverford students, Hillier’s team will develop a national training program for teachers, who would travel to Philadelphia and walk the Seventh Ward. After that, she plans to develop an online training course.

“It’s been six years now, and we have no intent of stopping,” says Hillier.
