That number, however, doesn’t diminish the contributions of these professionals on local and national scales. Their work has been underwritten by the accomplishments of pioneering African American architects who came before them. Some of them include Albert Cassell, Norma Sklarek, Paul Williams, Robert Taylor, Max Bond and others.
