Number 5 in my series of the "Who Am I" progressive guessing game. I give you some clues, you guess the name of the progressive hero. It's a one-click diversion from the political rat race. What's your PIQ? Clues follow...
I'm learning a lot from this little exercise in progressive history. And I'm awed and inspired by the intelligence, perseverance and courage of the people featured in the "Who Am I" quiz. Some of them lived in times even more troubled and antithetical to liberal ideas than ours, but they stuck to it. Some are fighting the battles today. We owe them all respect and remembrance.
Here's the next installment:
Who Am I?
-I championed the diversity and social cohesion of traditional urban neighborhoods.
-I believed that individuals and small groups are more effective at creating change than governments
-I was an urban visionary, radical activist and writer.
-I inspired generations of urban planners and architects with my 1961 book, The Death and Life of American Cities.
