Today’s preservation movement is increasingly committed to saving places that tell a full, inclusive story of our nation’s past. Preservationists are engaging and learning from diverse communities to remedy the biases and oversights of earlier historians. Last year, at our national conference—PastForward 2015—we convened a “Diversity Summit” to take stock of our movement’s work creating a broader, more representative preservation that champions diversity and inclusion. Attendees applauded the important strides we have made but also recognized that we still have a lot of work ahead of us—and that telling a full range of stories and building an allied future is a vital part of that work. In this issue of the Forum Journal, we undertake that work by recapturing and building on those powerful conversations.
