  Blair Ruble Lecture on Corridor of Cool: A Tale of Washington's U Street  
(Greater Washington DC Metro Area)

Washington DC's U Street has become a symbol for the city's remarkable turnaround from symbol of urban failure to frontrunner of contemporary urban growth. The story is more complex than it might seem at first glance. Was U Street in fact a failure a half century ago? How deep does the neighborhood's revitalization run?

Blair Ruble, author of "Washington's U Street: A Biography," will recount the history of the U Street community from its origins during the Civil War up to the gentrification of today. He will explore the meaning of U Street for the city and the nation at large.

Ruble's presentation will be followed by a discussion facilitated by Derek Hyra, associate professor, Urban Affairs and Planning, who has done extensive research on the revitalization of the U Street corridor.

Prior to the lecture, prospective students are invited to learn more about Virginia Tech's Urban Affairs and Planning Program at a 6 p.m. session.

This is the first in a series of spring 2013 lectures sponsored by the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech and the School of Public and International Affairs.
