Older building surrounded by newer ones.

Historic preservation provides tangible connections to the past by ensuring that historic places remain as cultural touchpoints for generations to come. However, assessments of what is worth preserving have often been based on architectural significance and integrity, leaving out many sites of cultural significance to BIPOC communities.

The Beyond Integrity working group was formed to identify inequity in current preservation processes, engage local decision-makers in embracing new standards, and foster stronger voices for preservation advocates. Join historic preservation advocates who are working to ensure that the places we save represent the full breadth and diversity of our communities.

History Café is produced as a partnership between MOHAI and HistoryLink. Join MOHAI and HistoryLink on the third Wednesday of the month for a discussion about local history—both popular and obscure—and discover something new.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning is available during the program through generous support of the Institute for Museum and Library Services. For additional accessibility support, please contact [email protected].
