Monday, March 13, 2017 | Posted by lalh

Untitled1The Foundation for Landscape Studies has awarded the John Brinckerhoff Jackson Book Prize to Landscapes of Exclusion: State Parks and Jim Crow in the American South by William E. O’Brien!

“O’Brien has completed a remarkable work of scholarship in landscape history that makes it possible for us, finally, to understand this formerly obscured, but clearly significant, category of American parks, those created under the ‘separate but equal’ doctrine.”
—Ethan Carr, author of Mission 66: Modernism and the National Park Dilemma
