ACHP to Participate in Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Panel on Preserving Historic Places
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and its Vice Chairman Clement A. Price will present on September 19, from 4-5:30 p.m. at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 43rd Annual Legislative Conference, the premier conference on legislative and policy issues impacting the African American community.
Price will be joining the National Trust for Historic Preservation; the African American Experience Fund of the National Park Foundation; and actress Sonja Sohn, founder and CEO of ReWired for Change, in a session sponsored by American Express.
The session, “Preserving African American Historic Places: Breathing New Life into Our Communities,” will discuss how preservation can positively impact the African American community. Honoring the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement, the panel will inform the audience about how historic preservation provides opportunities to document African American heritage and cultural resources while creating jobs through tools (such as the Historic Tax Credit and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act), providing educational benefits, and revitalizing communities.
Attendance is limited to registered conference attendees. For information on registering for the conference, click here.
