Saving Slave Houses

...Jobie Hill, a preservation architect, [about] her project Saving Slave Houses.

Hill is determined to build a first-of-its-kind database that honors and preserves these spaces in more than memory, and to unite the houses with the stories of people who once inhabited them. As she sees it, such a repository is long overdue. “There has never been a national survey of slave houses, except for the one I’m trying to do,” Hill says.

Houses, says Hill, in her TEDx talk ..., “can tell us a lot about the people that lived there…. Each slave house has a valuable story to tell.”
