The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's podcast, Preservation Perspectives, focused on the African American history of Historic Natchez, Mississippi, in this episode, featuring Mimi Miller, Executive Director Emerita of Historic Natchez Foundation.

Miller talks about the slave trade in Natchez and the historic places associated with African American life in the town, including the Natchez National Cemetery, where many African Americans who fought in the Civil War were laid to rest. She also discusses the work being done to preserve these important places that tell the full story of our country.

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.
