The City of Multicultural Love

By Susan Wenner Jackson Premium

Philadelphia has more than just the Liberty Bell to offer visitors, and a new Web site by the city’s multicultural tourism organization shows you just how much more. The Philadelphia Multicultural Affairs Congress launched its own site to attract people of color to the city. The site features African-American, Asian, Hispanic and Native American aspects of the City of Brotherly Love, including:

• the world’s first African Methodist Episcopal (AME) church, Mother Bethel AME

• the Latino community’s “center of gold,” or el centro de oro, in what’s become known as the “Fifth & Lehigh” district of the city

• United American Indians of the Delaware Valley Museum
