Home » Levy Lecture Series Presents via Zoom: Changing the Narrative: Evanston African American Heritage Site Program with Morris (Dino) Robinson, Jr.
Established in 1863, the City of Evanston benefited economically and socially from the contribution of its African American residents—a fact often diminished in, if not excluded entirely from, historical records and narratives.
With the leadership of Shorefront, the City of Evanston passed resolution 54-R-20 to recognize the sites and buildings that speak tangibly to the role African Americans played in shaping the community. While many buildings have not been afforded the formal protection of historic preservation efforts, the community is now committed to recognizing this cultural legacy with historic markers and education.
Dino Robinson will explore the first eight of these sites and discuss how this program took shape to establish and recognize their historical significance beyond established norms.
