Jobie Hill is a preservation architect, who launched the project “Saving Slave Houses” in 2012 to ensure that slave dwellings and their history were not lost forever. This illustrated lecture will highlight ongoing slave house research, fieldwork efforts, and new methods of interpretation. Today’s preservation project stakeholders now include the voices of diverse groups. These changes have helped to empower historically excluded communities and preserve irreplaceable historic and cultural resources that are quickly disappearing and being forgotten.
