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.To learn more about Eden Cemetery,
