Temple’s part in North Philly continues to evolve [photos]


On this 50th anniversary of the Philadelphia race riots, we continue our week’s retrospective with David Bartelt, a Temple University professor of geography and urban studies.

Professor Bartelt talks with NewsWorks Tonight host, Dave Heller, about his perspective, now as a professor and as a Temple student in 1964.

Bartelt remembers the decline he could see in North Philadelphia.
