Episode 7: A Conversation with Walter Greason

This week I spoke with Walter D. Greason. Walter is the Dean of the Honors School and an historian in the Department of History and Anthropology at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. His recent works include Planning Future Cities (a co-edited collection on urban development with Anthony Pratcher II), Cities Imagined (a co-edited collection on the Africa Diaspora in media and culture with Julian C. Chambliss), and Industrial Education (a co-edited collection on race and industrialization with David Goldberg). Greason’s groundbreaking cultural history, Suburban Erasure, won the prize for Best Non-Fiction about New Jersey in 2014. He also serves as the Treasurer for the Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH). A life member of the African American Intellectual History Society, Dr. Greason’s #RacialViolenceSyllabus reached millions of readers after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, contributing to an ongoing public debate
