Planning and the Black Community Division A Forum to Address Issues of Significance to the Black Community
For four decades the Planning and the Black Community Division (PBCD) of the American Planning Association has pursued its mission of providing a forum for discussion, research and action by Black planners, citizens, students and anyone concerned about planning issues in the Black community. In this position, PBCD fills a unique role. The photo to the right is indicative of how PBCD has pivoted to a virtual format, in response to the global pandemic currently facing the world.
