Preservation of African American Spaces

We are excited to see the initiative to preserve African American Spaces. In his article about Historic Preservation, Brent Leggs states, “Along with elevating forgotten places, we aim to reveal the hidden, and sometimes willfully obscured, layers of history at all historic sites”. Below are some of the organizations that may benefit from this project. 

Tuskegee Airmen, Inc.
