Susan Brin Hyatt, Associate Professor of Anthropology

Inspired in part by the U.S. War on Poverty, in 1969, the British government funded 12 Community Development Projects in impoverished communities across Britain. By 1978, this experiment came to an end amidst a great deal of political turmoil. Come hear how some of the original community development workers reflect on that tumultuous time.
