Randolph was one of the last thriving and intact Black neighborhoods in Richmond to be disrupted by urban renewal. Join LaToya Gray-Sparks as she discusses the Reconstructing Randolph Project, which explores the rich history and people who made up the Randolph neighborhood, how preservation and planning efforts have impacted it, as well as policies as strategies that can be implemented to preserve the neighborhood and protect the long term Black residents who wish to remain.
LaToya Gray-Sparks is a cartographer, historian, urban planner, and preservationist focused on reclaiming Black spaces through maps.
