African American Sites Mobile App

The African American Heritage Preservation Foundation has created a free mobile app "African American Sites," that will be available through The App Store and Google Play. The African American Sites app features more than 1,000 African American Sites located throughout the United States that include Heritage Trails, Military Sites, Museums, National Historic Landmarks, Endangered Historic Places and other historic places that focus on the rich contributions of African Americans to our nation's history. We were able to cull information from various websites and search engines to consolidate these wonderful African American Historic Sites into one application. There are also useful plugins to create a Site Chat with your family, friends and colleagues as well as a Geo-Fence that will notify you when you are near a particular site so that you can contact the site, if applicable, for more information such as hours of operation.

The release date August 12, 2020.

This African American Sites app includes a summary of each site and a link, where applicable, to find out more information and direct links for some that have virtual tours in lieu of visitation and some with educational lessons. There are also useful plugins to create a Site Chat with your family, friends and colleagues as well as a Geo-Fence that will notify you when you are near a particular site so that you can contact the site, if applicable, for more information such as hours of operation.

With further donations, we will be able to provide additional African American sites, particularly those that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
