A People’s Guide to Preserving ‘Undervalued’ Sites of Historical Significance: A Toolkit

This toolkit enables users to unpack historical legacies and their relevance to current societal conflicts, with a specific focus on the unique circumstances surrounding the underlying histories of 'undervalued' sites.

It will further impact future generations, communities, and teachers by creating a new and equitable approach to preservation.

ABOUT THIS TOOLKIT

This "People's Guide" was created in cooperation with The Institute for History and Healing, Inc. by Master's Degree candidates at Northeastern University:

 

Anna Ibru - Master of Public Policy

Catrina Schick - Master of Urban Planning & Policy

Nicole Howard - Master of Public Policy

Sarah Sharpe - Master of Public Administration

Northeastern's School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs requires students to complete a Capstone--a research-based project--in which students apply core training and specialized skills through community immersion.
