Walser, Lauren. “Three Influential African-American Architects You Should Know About | National Trust for Historic Preservation.” Three Influential African-American Architects You Should Know About | National Trust for Historic Preservation. N.p., 09 Feb. 2016. Web. 27 Mar. 2017.
In this article Lauren Walser states African American Architects that everyone should know about and their contribution.  The few that she names in this article are :  Robert Taylor, Vertener Woodson Tandy,  and Paul R. Williams. She made it clear that with each of these architects they have made and gave credit when credit was due. In other words they knew where their buildings were and have originated from and continued to build off of their learnings. For some, (Robert Taylor in particular) his teaching were passed from generation to generation. He was trained from his father who was a former slave. She proved that some of his teachings ranged from libraries, residence halls, academic centers, and many more. She uses these three major architects to contrast them but to also include a comparison of all their teachings originated from Africa’s culture. This article will help me understand the actual African American architects viewpoint on the issue and how they became known to do what they love.
