dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines African American participation in historic preservation between 1990 and 2000. Creating an index of African American participation for U.S. states through a modification of the Location Quotient, called the Participation Quotient, this thesis finds that African American participation increased dramatically over this period with African American participation exceeding non-African American participation in the majority of states. Several determinants of why African American efforts in historic preservation are often unseen in the broader preservation movement are discussed.
