What is Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.

In collaboration with the Black Writers Museum, Germantown Historical Society and Historic Germantown, we are raising funds to
develop and produce the “Souvenir of Germantown Walking Tour”.

A rare, small pamphlet that was created in 1913 to commemorate Black Achievements over the 50 years since Emancipation.
It featured a series of photographs with captions related to African American history in Germantown.
The pamphlet was the work of John Gordon Baugh, Jr., printer and publisher. His father had been a caterer in the city –according to W.E.B. DuBois,
“catering was the Negro’s surest route to something like prosperity in 19th-century Philadelphia” – and about 1880 bought a substantial house at Duval and Jefferson (now Cherokee) Streets.
