On today's broadcast I am interviewing Mr. Delaitre Hollinger, Historian and founder of the National Association for the Preservation of African American History & Culture (NAPAAHC). We will be discussing the importance of the preservation of African American history and culture. Mr. Hollinger is a young man who has dedicated himself to learning and preserving African American history. Through his organization NAPAAHC he has been able to successfully preserve historical sites, and even have roads, parks and buildings renamed after important black figures.
To learn more about NAPAAHC visit www.blackpreservation.org.
NAPAAHC was founded on a mission to preserve, cultivate and protect the life, history, cultural, and historical resources of African-Americans through education, saving our historical treasures, and sharing the stories of unsung heroes in local communities throughout the United States.
