BlackVoices History Quest, Black History In Your Backyard: Philadelphia Edition

We're kicking off our national BlackVoices History Quest tour in "The City of Brotherly Love," Philadelphia.

Probably best known for its hoagies, cheesesteaks and being the home of the Roots, Philadelphia is also home to a broad range of interesting and educational black history museums and events this month.

Check out some of the great places we found. You can also map out a family trip to all these places using the map below.

If we missed a place that you know and love, let us know in the comments, tweet it to us using the hashtag #BHMQuest or post it on our Facebook wall. We'll keep adding to this map and gallery as the month goes on.
