Juneteenth Guided Talk at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens

June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens sits on a storied block. It is anchored, on one end, by an African Methodist Episcopal (AME) church, the roots of which stretch back to 1793 when black preachers responded to the segregation of Philadelphia churches by forming their own. On the other end of the block sits a historic firehouse which once employed Philadelphia’s first black firemen, better known as the Defenders of the Seventh Ward.

For generations, the Seventh Ward was the indisputable heart of Black Philadelphia, boasting the largest black population of any northern city. Its rich, complex history is an inextricable part of PMG’s history. Find out why during this short talk which will include an examination of one of Isaiah Zagar’s most iconic murals: Rose and the Firefighters.

This short talk is free of charge and open to everyone. Reservations are not required. Tickets to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens are not required. Just meet in the Alder Street alley off South Street (between S. 10th and S. 11th Streets) at 2:00 pm.
