Join the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at 325 Cooper Street for live-streamed conference sessions and discussions. This session features Supporting Descendants Who Are Saving Their Historic Places.
- Preservationists today are called upon to support the efforts of descendants who are protecting, preserving, and interpreting historic places. But what are the best ways preservationists can effectively and respectfully support the descendants’ efforts to save their places and to tell their stories? During this panel discussion, which will highlight the views of several descendants who are leading advocacy campaigns, PastForward participants will learn what forms of strategic support descendant communities need from preservation professionals in order to connect with the past, inform the present, and impact the future. Experiences will be drawn from campaigns to preserve an African American cemetery, a Japanese American internment camp, and a Native American boarding school. Sponsored by the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund.
