This summer I was honored to be selected as a participant for Touching History: Preservation in Practice, and it has truly taught me a lot about historic preservation. Touching History is a program developed by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, National Park Service, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s HOPE Crew. It was created to help students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) gain more interest in historic preservation.
