Join Preservation North Carolina for a presentation by UNC-W professor, Dr. Tara White. Many are familiar with the early preservation work of Susan Pringle Frost, the Mount Vernon Ladies Association, and other legacy organizations. Few are familiar with parallel efforts by African American Clubwomen during this same time. Dr. White’s presentation will explore the contributions and lasting impact Black women’s organizations had on pioneering historic preservation in the 20th century.
Dr. Tara White is an assistant professor at UNC-Wilmington. She specializes in Public History, as well as African American, Civil Rights and Women’s History.
