Episode 2 of the ACHP Podcast, "Preservation Perspectives," features an interview with Mr. Robert Stanton, ACHP Expert Member and former National Park Service Director about the holiday Juneteenth. The holiday commemorates the day when a Union general informs the enslaved people of Texas that the Civil War was over and that they are free. This episode examines what has happened since then and how historic preservation can serve to preserve the past while looking to a future that includes freedom, justice, and equality for all.
