At last I started reading Rory Hyde’s ‘Future Practice: Conversations from the Edge of Architecture’
I am pleased to say I can quote something from the first paragraph of the Foreward by Dan Hill (I will read more, really):

My last name is Freeman.
Perhaps my ancestors were slaves or convicts…
But I’d like to think they were redefining their practice even in the olden days.
