History Associates: “Prioritizing the Preservation of Black Legacies in Santa Barbara”

October 19 @ 5:30 pm

East Side Library, Montecito Street

This presentation will walk through Santa Barbara’s recently completed African American Historic Context Statement on how the built history of a community plays a role in helping uplift African-American and Black people today. This is a unique collaboration of social justice leaders and historic preservation specialists in Santa Barbara who worked to compile Santa Barbara’s Black history—one overlooked for decades. The historic context statement examines the history of Santa Barbara’s African-American and Black community through historic buildings. It identifies buildings and sites important to the community that can now be designated and protected as historic resources. The lecture will highlight the many contributions of people of African American and Black people in Santa Barbara, beginning in the Spanish and Mexican periods through the postwar fight for civil rights. Co-presented by Sojourner Kincaid Rolle of Healing Justice SB and Nicole Hernandez, Architectural Historian for the City of Santa Barbara.

Speakers: Sojourner Kincaid Rolle and Nicole Hernandez
