The oldest African-American library in Miami, the Dorsey Memorial Library is in danger if being irreparably damaged. The City of Miami is in the beginning phases undertaking an extensive restoration process.
The Bethel A.M.E. Church of Patterson, New Jersey is in need of restoration. The building was declared an historical landmark in 2010 by the City of Patterson. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. visited the site on March 27, 1968; just eight days before his assassination.
As we continue to grow as an organization, The National Association for the Preservation of African-American History & Culture, Inc. will need your support and financial contributions to continue to fight to save the many thousands of endangered African-American historic properties throughout the United States that are discarded each day, and to educate the public about their historical significance.
