February 25, 2022

SAN DIEGO — A pioneering African-American architect whose contributions to the field of architecture remain largely unrecognized, L. Quincy Jackson mentored and trained a cadre of African-American architects during his career, among them the late Walter Vincent, Jr., Robert L. Wesley, AIA, Charles Perinchief, AIA, the late W. Pedro Newbern, AIA, the late Dr. Hinton C. Jones, Jr., RA, Ronald Greene, RA, Ray K. Schull, James Larkin, and Robi4’s own Michael D. Robinson, AIA.

In order to preserve his legacy, the firm decided to mount an historic profile and career retrospective on L. Quincy Jackson during Black History Month, the first installment in its upcoming series dedicated to pioneering African-American architects.
