National Historical Publications and Records Commission

Kenan Research Center  has received a Archival Projects Grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission at the National Archives to rehouse, arrange, and create publicly accessible finding aids for collections that document populations and land use in and around Atlanta

AHC will be processing the Atlanta Real Estate Board appraisals, Atlanta Urban Design Commission records, Atlanta Urban Design Commission visual arts materials, and the Atlanta Department of City Planning records. Together these collections provide a multi-faceted insight into historic gentrification and land use in Atlanta, which in many ways exemplify national trends. 


The collections will help researchers tell stories about the impacts of segregation and redlining on Black Atlantans over much of the 20th century because Atlanta’s history provides essential insight into regional and national trends related to land and home ownership and race relations.
