Let’s Preserve Our History!
Age, limited funds and gentrification are erasing representations of African American history in Philadelphia.
Help us control this!
Introducing The Society to Preserve Philadelphia African American Assets (SPPAAA), a 501C3 organization that will advocate and act to preserve, maintain ownership and ensure awareness of historic and culturally significant assets (properties, murals, monuments and placards, cemetery, archeological sites and organizations).
Help out when you can and be an advocate.
