Remix: Price Of A Ticket, James Baldwin





A chronicling of the life and perspective late great African American
novelist, essayist and playwright James Baldwin exploring his views on
America in his day, his relationship to a strict father, religion, even
his evolution in accepting and making reasonable use of his talents.
Baldwin's reflections also highlight the classic father son
relationship; how does a father guide a son without making rigid
decisions for him? If youthful rebellion stem from fear of a
predetermined life, how does a parent truly express to a child that the
world can be full of many possibilities?

Black Places That Matter: Historic and Architectural Resources of Prairie View A&M University, Waller County, Texas

I will be posting National Register of Historic Places Property Nominations from now through Black History Month (trying to get a full month in). These nominations are detailed descriptions of places of national, state, and cultural significance. 

 Why does the National Register Matter?


  The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.
       National Register FAQ: http://www.nps.gov/nr/faq.htm

The purpose of posting these nominations is to raise awareness of and appreciate African American contributions to American culture, history, and planning. I will also use the nominations to show the existence of certain planning and development principles African Americans applied in their own communities, over the past two centuries, such as sustainability, cooperative economics, regional planning, and permaculture.
