George Washington enslaved our ancestors in Philadelphia at America’s first “White House,” which was located at the current site of the new Liberty
Bell Center at Sixth and Market streets.
Since 2002, Avenging The Ancestors Coalition (ATAC) has been fighting for a memorial to honor our ancestors. And that fight has finally been won!
Now that the President’s House/Slavery Memorial project- which was designed by a Black architect- is under construction and is nearly completed,
the City of Philadelphia has a proposed exhibit plan on display at the Independence Visitor Center (located on the northeast corner of Sixth and
Market streets, across from the Liberty Bell Center). You can go there and see that plan, and while there you can submit a supportive comment card
regarding what you like about it or what should be done to make it even better than it already is.
You may also spend about 5-10 minutes easily viewing the entire plan online and you can also quickly submit your supportive comment card online.
Simply log onto here. It’s that easy. But you
must do it by the deadline of 5:00 PMz on May 3. Make sure you include your name and phone number. And don’t forget to point out that you’re an
ATAC member or supporter.
For more info, contact ATAC at 215/552-8751 or at www.avengingtheancestors.com.
Please immediately spread the word about this culturally historic Slavery Memorial!
