Teaching and preserving Black History is under threat. The history that Black people made during the Great Migration is on the verge of becoming extinct. Gentrification is threatening many spaces that are important to our underserved communities around the United States. It is time for us to own and monetize our history. We must tell our own stories. Join the Black Preservation movement.

“History is best qualified to reward the researcher. It is important for Black people to know our history, because in not knowing our history, we don’t have a guide. And without a guide, we will continue to be lost,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
