One of the most important occurrences in historic preservation in the first quarter of the 21st century is the recognition and preservation of properties that embody the breadth of stories, from the painful to the exhilarating, and rich and important legacy of African American history. This webinar will examine the opportunities for the future and a set of experiences preserving these important resources.
