The past is filled with key points at which different decisions might have changed the course of history. Using the format of a deliberative forum and thinking from the perspective of a citizen in post-World War II Pittsburgh, students will discuss three options for how the modern city should be shaped. A hands-on exploration of primary archival sources from the Allegheny Conference on Community Development will set the scene, followed by an hour-long forum moderated by History Center education staff.
