Shelter Series: Black Landscapes Matter
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Shelter Series is Preservation NC’s Virtual Programming Series about Places That Matter.
We fondly refer to PNC as “the animal shelter for old houses.” It’s a fun nickname, but a responsibility we take to heart. Right now, “shelter” has taken on so many important meanings. At its core, we believe “shelter” remains what it’s always been – a place that provides cover and protection.
Our work is focused on shelters — the houses, buildings, churches, schools, and mills that have provided cover and protection for generations of North Carolinians. During this time when “sheltering” has become central to our lives, we want to explore with you the culture, architecture, diversity and stories of the many shelters across our state.
We hope you’ll join us as we provide some fun, distraction, cover and comfort. Come virtually “Shelter” with us! Visit PreservationNC.org for upcoming “Shelter Series” events!
Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder, Alicia Garza described the underlying motivations for the BLM movement as fighting “to be seen, to live with dignity, and to be connected.” Building on this quote, Professor Kofi Boone uses these three themes as lenses to examine landscapes in North Carolina, and to show how Black Landscapes (could) Matter. Presented by Kofi Boone, ASLA – Professor of Landscape Architecture at NC State University.
