According to a recent article published by Architectural Digest, the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund is working to educate future generations about Black history through the preservation of historic places throughout the United States such as the Harriet Tubman Home (pictured above), which received a $50,000 grant in 2019 through the fund. In addition to the Tubman home, grantees from 2018 and 2019 include the Langston Hughes House in New York’s Harlem neighborhood and Boston’s African Meeting House, the oldest extant Black church in the United States.
