Preserving African American Communities and Landmarks: A Conversation with Brent Leggs (African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund) and Diedre Houchen (Office of Resilience, Climate Change and Sustainability; Alachua County)

Without a thorough reckoning with the complex and difficult history of our country, especially when it comes to race, we will not be able to overcome intolerance, injustice, and inequality. That is why, in November 2017, the National Trust for Historic Preservation launched its African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, a $25 million campaign to reconstruct a true national identity that reflects America’s diversity. Preserving this tapestry of America’s shared culture, pride and heritage is an act of racial justice and should be viewed as a civil right.
