Veteran journalist and renowned author Antero Pietila has spent most of his career covering politics, government, and city neighborhoods. From Harlem to Baltimore to South Africa, and the Soviet Union, Pietila has used his platform to cover and discuss social justice, civil rights, and race. It is with the experiences and knowledge he gained as a journalist, that he brings his books to life.
On November 20, 2018, Pietila will sit down to discuss his new book, “The Ghosts of Johns Hopkins: The Life and Legacy that Shaped an American City”, which not only examines the life and legacy of Johns Hopkins, the powerhouse behind the world’s most influential medical institutions, but discusses the impact his institutions had on the racial geography of Baltimore, even long after his death.
