HiFi #9: Unjust History

Ryan Rowberry discusses highlights from the November 2015 PastForward conference of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Much of the conversation focuses on how historic places can be used to catalyze difficult, but necessary, conversations about past atrocities and ultimately achieve reconciliation. Ryan is a law professor at Georgia State University College of Law and he helps direct the Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth.
