Preserving Black Revolutionaries

On March 7, 2022 Amber gave the Yale School of Architecture’s George Morris Woodruff, Class of 1857, Memorial Lecture. It was a tremendous occasion to present where her love of historic preservation started. It was while an undergraduate at Yale that she took a graduate seminar in preservation led by Catherine (Tappy) Lynn, that sowed the seeds for her current professional practice. The talk, “Preserving Black Revolutionaries: Carter G. Woodson and the Afro-American Bicentennial Corporation” covered her recent work updating the Woodson National Historic Site landmark nomination and research conducted as a Dumbarton Oaks Mellon Fellow in Urban Landscape Studies.
