Organizations discuss preserving Detroit's African American history

Chronicling the careers and stories of Black Architects as part of Detroit's, Michigan's and America's history is at the core of the Noir Design Parti project. We connected with other organizations to discuss why preserving Detroit's African American history is crucial.

The goal of the discussion was to help identify concerns, identify collection resources for Black history archives, and promote the needs of archivists/ historians and archives from people of color and the places important to their history. 

Moderated by Noir Design Parti's Saundra Little, AIA, NOMA, panelists included:
