Saving and Collecting as Democratic Practice

(p.67) Chapter Three Preservation Is People
History Comes Alive

University of North Carolina Press

The preservation and collection of structures, objects and stories changes significantly in the 1960s and 1970s. Building preservation is democratized as more people and organizations are involved, and different kinds of structures are targeted, including vernacular and recent buildings, and sites associated with African American history. Likewise the collection of vernacular objects and expanded oral history practice also changed at this moment.
