The College of Architecture and Planning invites you to celebrate Black History Month in the Built Environment

The R. Wayne Estopinal College of Architecture and Planning kicked off the celebration of Black History Month with guest lecture series speaker Brent Leggs, executive director of the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund.

Leggs poetically discussed the positive impacts his organization is having in preserving the rich history and culture in communities of color and the ongoing challenges. The African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund is the largest preservation campaign ever undertaken on behalf of African American history. Through it, Leggs leads a broad community of leaders and activists in honor of the clarion that preserving African American cultural sites is fundamental to understanding the American story.

The lecture was popular with CAP listeners and our partners from Indiana Landmarks who co-sponsored the event. We invite you to watch the recorded lecture on the CAP YouTube page.
