Pride and Prejudice

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ted Landsmark is an attorney and architect. He served as the President of Boston Architectural College (BAC) from 1997 to 2014, and was previously the Dean of Graduate and Continuing Education at the Massachusetts College of Art.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

He also served as the Director of Boston's Office of Community Partnerships.

Landsmark has received fellowships from the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts and the National Science Foundation, and he served on the editorial board for Architecture Boston.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Landsmark also serves as a trustee to numerous arts-related foundations including Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

He is widely recognized as an important advocate of diversity and of the African American cause in schools of architecture.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In the 1970s, Landsmark was working in Boston as a civil rights attorney and advocate.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Up until the violent assault from anti-busing activists and protestors, including Jim Kelly who is seen in the photograph The Soiling of Old Glory, Landsmark was involved primarily with trying to get more minority contractors into the construction industry.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

He had not been paying much attention to the busing situation.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It was only after the incident and sustaining injuries did Landsmark become involved in the city's conflict over busing as part of desegregation of the public schools.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The photograph raised public ire against anti-busing supporters through its depiction of a supporter appearing to weaponize the American flag in support of his cause.
