16 Aug 2021 8:30 AM | Marisa Gomez Nordyke

The National Historic Landmarks Program is pleased to announce the release of a new theme study, Civil Rights in America: Racial Discrimination in Housing. Authored by Matthew D. Lassiter and Susan Cianci Salvatore and prepared in cooperation with the Organization of American Historians (OAH) and National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO), this theme study is part four of the five-part Civil Rights in America. This fourth installment examines the history of housing discrimination against African American, Latinx, American Indian, and Asian American people leading to passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Beyond potential NHLs, the context here and in other NHL theme studies can be useful when preparing National Register nominations. The complete accessible PDF including analysis of potentially nationally significant properties is available for download here.
