Dear AWHS Belmont Mansion Friends, 

Our world today is unlike anything we have seen before with most of us staying-in-place except essential workers. These workers are daily making sacrifices that keep essential services operating. This is what being on the frontline looks like in our time. 

We have an ancestral history of being on the front lines. Whether those who endured the middle passage unaware of what the future would hold, freedom fighters for justice who broke the bonds of slavery through activism, or present day workers in every sector who have made it all the way to the White House. 
The history of African Americans must be preserved and celebrated.

Your partnership is vital to maintaining and advancing our mission. A donation of any amount ensures that this national treasure will continue to thrive and be a beacon of light that draws the world to appreciate the contributions of African Americans in America as integral and vital to educating, celebrating and fortifying the rich history for generations to come.

Keeping the legacy alive,

The American Women’s Heritage Society, stewards of the Philadelphia Belmont Manson and Underground Railroad Museum
