Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church

Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church is the oldest parcel of land continuously owned by African-Americans, making it a significant site in Philadelphia and the nation. This spot and five other 30-second public service announcements, made possible by GPTMC and its partners, were aired throughout Black History Month in 2008. The series earned a Mid-Atlantic Emmy nomination.
