Hallowed Grounds: Sites of African American Memory

"Americans of African descent are deeply embedded in the narrative of the American past, and the sites prompt us to remember. Over time, many of these sites of African American memory became hallowed ground. One cannot tell the story of American without preserving and reflecting on the places where African Americans have made history." - Association for the Study of African American Life and History
