Thank you for joining us for: Places of Color: Preserving San Antonio’s Underrepresented Narratives. We focused on Alazán Courts, the 1875 foundation of the St. James AME Church, and the Woolworth Building, a World Monuments Fund 2020 Watch Site. These endangered historic sites physically connect us to overlooked stories in our shared heritage, speaking to the struggle for equity and justice.
We hope this event has inspired you to actively support the preservation of these sites. Please use the following links to contact the decision-makers. Tell them you want to experience this history in place, not read about it on plaques.
Send a letter to the San Antonio Housing Authority.
