Please join the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, in partnership withMLK365, the Friends of Historic Eden Cemetery and WURD Radio for a day of volunteering and photojournalism at Historic Eden Cemetery on Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 10:00 am. Volunteers will help preserve history by taking photographs of headstones, which will be archived following the completion of the project. Some cameras will be available on-site, but volunteers should bring digital cameras or smart phones to use during the project, if they are able. Volunteers will also be helping to complete painting the front gate of the cemetery.


 Volunteers should dress in casual, comfortable clothing and footwear. Volunteers are encouraged to bring sunscreen and full water bottles. Parking is available on Springfield Road, right in front of the cemetery.

Created in 1902, Eden Cemetery is the first African American Cemetery in the United States. Eden serves as the final resting place for some of our country and region's most notable African Americans, including opera legend Marian Andersen, 19th-century Philadelphia civil rights leader Octavius Catto, and Christopher Perry, the founder of the Philadelphia Tribune, the nation's oldest continuously published African American newspaper.
