Ms. Anjelyque Easley Student ASLA

Emerging Professional, University of Texas at Arlington

Anjelyque Easley is an emerging professional in the field of Landscape Architecture. She was awarded the 2019 Undergraduate National Olmsted Scholar for her research that focuses on the erasure of the African American influence on the American landscape and the inadequacy of documentation of residents, places, and traditions. She observes parallels between documented and maintained post-World War II Jewish landscapes and lack of such in the post-enslavement African American landscapes. Her research analyzes cemeteries and burial sites, areas of residence, and places where people were relocated, such as camps and plantations. She holds a BLA from Pennsylvania State University.
