HOUSTON – November 20, 2013 - After hosting the Invisible Houston Revisited Policy Summit held at the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at TSU on November 7, 2013, Dean Robert D. Bullard is leading a team of scholars completing a major book project that takes its name from the Summit.  The Invisible Houston Revisited Book Project is sponsored by the School’s Mickey Leland Center for Environment Justice and Sustainability.  The book will include commissioned papers on topics from many of the panelists who presented at the November 7th 2013 Summit along with commissioned papers from other experts on a wide range of topics not covered in detail at the Summit, including civil rights, black politics and political empowerment, black-business ownership and wealth creation, education attainment and inequality, and criminal justice.  Updates will be posted periodically on this site.  This will be Bullard’s nineteenth book.  The project work-plan calls for the book to be completed in late 2014.
