MAPP Lecture: Brent Leggs - Preserving African American Historic Places: Reconstructing a New Identity | Wednesday October 23, 2013 | 6:00pm

Join us as we welcome Brent Leggs, Field Officer in the National Trust for Historic Preservations Boston Field OfficeHarvard Loeb Fellow, author of PRESERVING AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORIC PLACES, and thought leader in the field of historic preservation in the U.S. The lecture is the Marvin Breckenridge Patterson Lecture. Since the 1970s, grassroots activism has begun to blossom as African Americans joined the cause and entered the world of historic preservation. Now those values are taking root in the black community. Local preservationists are forming nonprofits and replicating the best-known preservation model in the industry  the museum. From saving small, unadorned row houses, to bringing life to the story of a free black community in Brooklyn, we learn from lessons revealed in their preservation stories. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 17, 2013
