BSLA: GSD Frederick Law Olmsted Lecture: Everett L. Fly, “American Cultural Landscapes: Black Roots and Treasures”

October 27, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Everett L. Fly believes that African American legacies are embedded in the physical and cultural substance of many of America’s built and vernacular placesFormal education in architecture introduced him to the positive potential of planning and design in respecting and expressing the cultures of people wherever they live, work and play. He believes that American planning and design should be more deliberate in reflecting and respecting a broader cultural diversity, including Black and Indigenous people.

Fly will discuss research, discovery, interpretation and applications of his preservation and cultural landscape work, including autonomous Black settlements, urban enclaves, districts, schools, churches, cemeteries, cultural rituals and traditions.
