Session Description

When is Historic Preservation Radical? is a recorded session of the 2020 AASLH Online Annual Meeting.

Speakers

Chair: Steve Boyd-Smith 106 Group, St. Paul, MN
Over the past 30 years, Steve has created interpretive experiences for dozens of historic sites, visitor centers, and museums around the country. Among his accomplishments, Steve's approach to the Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest Master Interpretive Plan effectively brought the story of the enslaved community into the site's interpretation and furthered local partnerships with community members. Steve—a recurring presenter at AASLH, AAM, and other conferences—is convening this conversation with curiosity, expecting to learn along with the audience. He will introduce the topic and the other speakers and will moderate discussion.
