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.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation presents its new podcast, Preservation Perspectives, a historic preservation interview program with the people of the historic preservation community discussing the issues of the day. This episode, hosted by ACHP Chairman Aimee Jorjani, features Steve Turner, the Colorado State Historic Preservation Officer, who talks about bouncing back from damage sustained to their history center in Denver during George Floyd protests and the lengthy shutdown due to COVID 19. He also talks about the many great things going on in historic preservation in Colorado.
