The annual Texas Regionalism Symposium from the Dallas Architecture Forum this year will address how African-American architects shaped the city in the 20th century. Morning sessions will look at individuals like William Sidney Pittman, Texas’s first African-American architect, whose Knights of Pythias Temple on Elm Street is a lone reminder of the prosperous African-American community that once occupied Deep Ellum.  Other sessions will focus on the generation of architects who came of age in Dallas after the founding of the National Organization of Minority Architects in 1971. $50 general public/$35 members of Dallas Architecture Forum, Nasher Sculpture Center and for UTA faculty and staff/$15 for UTA students
