“Preserving African American Historic Places: Suggestions and Sources” reviews the varied historic resources that document the stories of African Americans in Tennessee from the antebellum period to the Civil Rights movement. In addition to providing historical context for these resources, this new online publication sets forth hands-on suggestions for their preservation and interpretation. Based on the work of staff and students over the last decade, “Preserving African American Historic Places” includes numerous links to relevant projects and resources that the CHP has compiled over the years. Links to the CHP’s recent digital initiatives in partnership with MTSU’s Walker Library, such as Southern Places and Trials and Triumphs, are also featured within the essays in the publication.
