Slavery

A still image from Jobie Hill's TedX presentation. Hill is speaking on stage.

Jobie Hill, a licensed preservation architect, focuses on the architecture of slavery, the influences slave dwellings had on the lives of enslaved inhabitants and their descendants, and the preservation of the history of enslaved people. Ms. Hill seeks to ensure the irreplaceable pieces of history are not lost forever. In this video she explains the impetus behind her work, her methodology, and why the history of slave dwellings matters.
