The project will provide an overarching history to honor the contributions of Black Georgians from pre-colonial period to the present, a framework for identification of historic resource types and themes related to the Black experience, and guidance on how to evaluate Black historic resources for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Help from the public is requested, via an online portal, to identify places and uncover stories associated with Black heritage not recognized in past historic preservation efforts.

Ethos Preservation is being guided by an advisory committee of professionals from across the state with knowledge of Black historic resources and hands-on experience with the preservation of Black heritage.
