Created in 2019 by Africatown Natives, The Africatown Heritage Preservation Foundation has risen to the top of the class, as far as organizations are concerned, to be the go-to organization when it comes to the revitalization of Africatown. The Africatown Foundation applied for and received a grant for $50,000 in 2020 to assist in the hiring of an Executive Director to help guide the new organization. In addition, more funds have been raised to assist in the hiring of a top level person.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund recently named the Africatown Heritage Preservation Foundation (AHP Foundation) as one among 27 recipients that won more than $1.6 million in grant support.
Africatown’s new foundation, received the $50,000 from the National Trust through The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The award goes to key places and organizations that help protect and restore historic African American sites. The AHP Foundation will use the money to acquire professional help needed to bring the Africatown community together, said acting Board President Anderson Flen.
In addition to hiring an executive director, The Africatown Foundation has appointed one of the most diverse and impressive Board of Directors in Mobile County for non-profits. Consisting of former politicians, corporate executives, educational specialists, former governmental managers, former military personnel, business professionals & leaders and other highly qualified people, The Foundation’s Board of Directors have been steadily designing a path to success for The Foundation and the Africatown Community during the past 9 months.
Very soon, a roll-out of The Foundation’s Board of Directors will be announced and an executive director will be appointed thus beginning a new era for The Africatown Community and The City of Mobile.
