About 130 students at a Philadelphia high school started a project to help the African American community of Philadelphia. With this website these students hope to empower the black community. Throughout this site viewers can peruse opinions on various topics that are important to the black community. You may also find resources that are available in the city of Philadelphia.
In an effort to promote Black Businesses the students felt it was necessary to compile a list of businesses owned by African Americans, throughout the city. Their hope is so people can go visit these enterprises.
Finally, Philadelphia is a place with a lot of history. Many of these historical sites are important to African Americans. To bring about a sense of pride, some student researchers went out and took pictures and identified some of these sacred locations.
We thank you for visiting the site and hope that you find it empowering!
