by John Hope Bryant | Dec 22, 2015
"It is a fitting recognition of American history which we are sometimes all too willing to forget. The new building celebrates the start of a new era in African American history which has led to substantial progress in 150 years and will inevitably lead to more." Dr. James J. Heckman is the Henry Schultz Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago, a Nobel Memorial Prize winner in economics and an expert in the economics of human development.
