As a white editor of a mostly white staff, Lisa Cunningham wanted to acknowledge and celebrate Black History Month, but was unsure how to go about it, so she reached out for help.

This Tuesday, Pittsburgh City Paper contributing writer, educator, and architecture critic Charles Rosenblum will present "A Short Discussion of Architecture and Time" at the Landmarks Preservation Resource Center in Wilkinsburg.
