On behalf of the African American Heritage Preservation Foundation, I am pleased to announce the release of the free mobile app “African American Sites,” now available through The App Store and Google Play.
The African American Sites app features more than 600 African American Sites located throughout the United States and Territories that include Heritage Trails, Military Sites, Museums, National Historic Landmarks, and other historic places that focus on the rich contributions of African Americans to our nation’s history.
During this horrific pandemic, there has been a silver lining that provided us the opportunity to focus on this invaluable project. We were able to cull information from various websites and search engines to consolidate these wonderful African American Sites into one application.
This African American Sites app includes a summary of each site and a link to find out more information as well as 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 or tours. In addition, there is an easy way for you to share this app with others through Share App.
We welcome your comments and suggestions as this project evolves.
Stay safe and healthy!
