"In the 1950s, Lancaster began a comprehensive revitalization program that dramatically altered key blocks of the downtown, replacing handsome turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts structures with modernist concrete boxes and a sterile public square. The strategy for eliminating density and blighted buildings resulted in the demolition of whole blocks of dwellings and, perhaps more important, destabilized Lancaster's African American community." -- back cover.
