Georgia’s Full Story is a project of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) made possible by funding from the Historic Preservation Fund of the National Park Service. The statement's goal is to support the identification and documentation of historic resources associated with Black history statewide. 


For the effort, an appointed advisory committee of professionals from across the state will assist the prime consultant, Ethos, in providing knowledge of Black historic resources and the lived experience related to the preservation of Black heritage statewide. The project will culminate in a final document to include an overarching history documenting the contributions of Black Georgians from the pre-colonial period to the present, a framework for the  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. 


Once complete, the context statement will better facilitate nominations of Black historic resources to the National Register of Historic Places and will add to the Historic Preservation Division’s collection of more than a dozen statewide historic context statements. 


Ethos invites Georgians to contribute information related to significant Black resources, to include the location of specific resources, digital copies of old pictures, newspaper articles, or photos of buildings, sites, or artifacts that reveal untold narratives of Black experiences in Georgia.
