Schuyler Carter, a native of both Summit and Muskogee, Oklahoma, is a 2nd year PhD student in Urban and Regional Science at Texas A&M University, College Station. She is a proud of alumnus of Alabama A&M University, where she received her Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning. Carter also has a Bachelor of Arts in Agriculture Business.
Her research interests include all things related to the historically Black towns of Oklahoma, early settlers of Limestone County, Texas and the intersection of grassroots archives, museum curation and heritage/place preservation specifically related to the historic communities and towns that were settled by the formerly enslaved. She firmly believes that in order to accurately plan for future generations we must care for and acknowledge the histories, places and spaces of the past.
Currently, as a graduate research assistant, she works with the Texas Freedom Colonies Project, an educational, social justice initiative dedicated to preserving the heritage of Texas’ historic African American settlements, and the planners and preservationists that made them possible.
Schuyler is also very passionate about the preservation of Oklahoma’s rich Black history which is why she established, The Millennial Archivist platform. She is also a very proud member of #AlphaKappaAlpha Sorority, Incorporated. ??
