An injection of funding has been approved and allocated toward preserving 40 Black American historical sites, a donation made through the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The organization announced on Friday that more than $3 million in grants have been awarded to its African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund. This specific branch of the agency works to preserve historical sites and locations that are significant to Black American history.
