Building a Foundation for Action: Anti-Racist Historic Preservation Resources

Avrami, Erica; Gasha, Anna

This document compiles resources to further anti-racism efforts in the field of historic preservation. The compilation was launched and managed as part of the Urban Heritage, Sustainability, and Social Inclusion Initiative at Columbia University, a collaboration of the GSAPP Historic Preservation Program, the Earth Institute - Center for Sustainable Urban Development, and The American Assembly, with support from the New York Community Trust. The need for deep, structural shifts in preservation policy to confront exclusion and the challenges of climate change was the impetus behind the establishment of the Initiative, and this resource list was envisioned as a critical tool in that endeavor.
