Black History Walking Tour of Philadelphia's Seventh Ward
Philadelphia’s famous Seventh Ward was a thriving and bustling community populated by many Black Philadelphians as well as immigrants from the end of the 18th century until the 1960s. By 1900 the Ward was home to approximately 30% of Black Philadelphians. Boasting the largest Black population in the city, the Seventh Ward was the epicenter of Black culture and home to many past and present African-American schools, churches and institutions as well as abolitionists, educators, athletes and political and women’s civil rights activists. The Seventh Ward was so fascinating that W.E.B Du Bois traveled to Philadelphia to conduct his study of Philadelphia’s Black population residing in the ward. Staying in the Seventh Ward, Dr. Du Bois conducted door-to-door in-depth interviews with Black Philadelphians from all walks of life. He witnessed economic, educational, and political discrimination. We will visit the site where W.E.B Du Bois penned his book, 'The Philadelphia Negro' published in 1899. Through this tour, you will visit many of these sites and experience first-hand the remnants of this section of the city. Although this neighborhood went through massive transitions, losing most of its Black residents in the 1960s due to urban renewal and gentrification, many of the institutions, buildings, and homes that would have been familiar to Dr. Du Bois still remain.
