What is the role of design in the construction of racial identity, lived experience, and cultural memory? Black Landscapes Matter convenes conversation on the role of architects, landscape architects, and urban planners in the construction of structural racism in the built environment. This conversation convenes landscape architects Kofi Boone, Walter Hood, Sara Zewde, and is hosted by the Gardner's Ruettgers Curator of Landscape Charles Waldheim.

Charles Waldheim is John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Ruettgers Curator of Landscape at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum where he convenes The Larger (Landscape) Conversation series.
