Reckoning with Racism: Side B of Historic Preservation
April 23, 2021 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Sponsored by the Historic Preservation program and Pratt Historic Preservation Alumni, and moderated by Cynthia Copeland, President of the Institute for Exploration of Seneca Village History, the panel will feature Andrea Roberts PhD., founder of the Texas Freedom Colonies Project, Emma Osore, Managing Director of BlackSpace, Taylor Kabeary MSHP ’19 and Eduardo Duarte Ruas MSHP ’19 in conversation about how historic preservation can work to advance justice, equity and inclusion. The diversity of the historic preservation field has been challenged by the systemic disparities facing many from the BIPOC community who seek preservation education and employment. The panelists will explore some of these challenges and discuss how they’re being met by BIPOC scholars, educators and practitioners and their allies.
