MY BUFFALO

Henry Louis Taylor

Dr. Henry Louis Taylor is the director of the Center for Urban Studies at the University at Buffalo and a professor in the department of urban and regional planning. The Center for Urban Studies is the only institution in Western New York exclusively focused on the engagement, research and improvement of Buffalo’s black community. Q: What do you think sets Buffalo’s African American heritage apart from other U.S. cities? A: We’re a black community that’s part of an international city; we sit on the border of Canada. That location on the shores of Canada made Buffalo an important waystation on the Underground Railroad. Much of our large black community is of more recent heritage; it was not until after 1940 and the Second Great Migration that a substantial number of African Americans were living in Buffalo. Q: What do you love most about Buffalo? A: I want to be part of the battle to make this a better place to live. I love the gritty, tough, working class persona of Buffalo. It’s anchored in the black community but it’s part of the persona of the entire region. There’s a lot of character here. Buffalo represents one of those places that reflects the challenges the American people face at this moment in time. I’ve even come to love the weather. The cold and the snow bring the toughness and love here to the surface in a very powerful and creative way.
