Designing Victory - Robert P. Madison & Carlo Wolff Book Signing

When: Fri., Aug. 16 2019

A decorated member of the historic Buffalo Soldiers, Second Lieutenant Robert P. Madison was initially denied entry into the architecture program at Western Reserve University. After he showed up with his Purple Heart from an injury sustained in Italy, he was admitted, but told by the administrators that he would never work as an architect. He proved the bastards wrong and would open the first African-American architect firm in Ohio in 1954. Author Carlo Wolff helped Madison pen his memoir, Designing Victory. Tonight at 7:30, Wolff and Madison appear at Visible Voice Books in Tremont to talk about the book. Admission is free. (Niesel)
