PUBLIC SCHOLARSHIP (2019): New horizons for Texas Freedom Colonies research





Area historic preservationists and urban planning professor Andrea Roberts are collaborating to expand Roberts' research of Texas Freedom Colonies — settlements created between 1865 - 1920 by formerly enslaved people. The Atlas has become a mechanism for co-researching community locations and needs through its online atlas and survey. Community revitalization students and descendants engage in focus group discussions on settlement heritage, organizations, and conditions.
