ecoWURD Highlights NPF’s African American Experience Fund

Charles Ellison, host of WURD radio in Philadelphia, interviewed NPF Project Manager for Cultural Resources Angel Thompson on the ecoWURD radio program, a multimedia environmental justice journalism initiative examining Black communities at the intersection of race, health, income & the environment.

The interview focused on NPF’s African American Experience Fund, national park sites honoring Black history, partners such as ASALH (Association for the Study of African American Life and History), and the Association of African American Museums conference. Angel discussed the mission and goals of NPF’s African American Experience Fund and what it’s helping to make possible in partnership with NPS, such as helping to preserve Medgar and Myrlie Evers’ home and legacies, supporting the production of a new visitor center film at the Frederick Douglass home, and restoring the Carter G. Woodson home and connecting students to Woodson’s legacy through in-person and virtual experiences.
