North Philly Church of the Advocate



A couple weeks ago, Lizzy and I toured some social justice organizations in North Philly. Among them was the Church of the Advocate, a church that serves as a center for community organizing. While the church was designed and built by a famous architect, during the civil rights movement, the congregation recognized that the art throughout the building did not represent any African American history. In addition to serving as a center for civil rights organizing therefore, the church commissioned a series of murals that represent stories from the old testament with images of the civil rights movement.
