Directory of African American Architects hits 2000!
October 21st 2015 was the day that the Directory of African-American Architects (http://blackarch.uc.edu) documented that there are now 2000 African American licensed architects in the United States. Thirty-seven percent of those licensed this year are women architects.
The Directory of African American Architects is maintained as a public service to promote an awareness of who African American architects are and where they are located. The sole qualification for listing is licensure in one of the fifty US jurisdictions and their territories.
The Directory is administered by Dennis Mann and Bradford Grant and supported by the Center for the Study of Practice at the University of Cincinnati.
