Alexandria Society for the Preservation of Black Heritage, Inc.

members of the ASPBH 

Interested in learning about and preserving the rich history of African Americans in Alexandria? If so, join the Alexandria Society for the Preservation of Black Heritage (ASPBH).


Our History

The Society was formed on August 6, 1980. The original goal of the organization was to preserve the old Alfred Street Baptist Church building, one of the oldest African American Baptist Churches in the National Capitol area. After helping to save the Alfred Street Baptist Church, the Society and the Alumni Association of Parker-Gray High School jointly requested that the City of Alexandria enlarge and support the Alexandria Black History Museum in perpetuity, where tangible links to the past history and contributions of African Americans would be preserved.


Our Mission

ASPBH continues its mission to identify, preserve and educate the overall Alexandria community if it’s illustrious black heritage. We support our mission by:

  • Preserving, collections and promoting the early history and impressive contributions of the black community of Alexandria
  • Financial support and volunteer services for the daily operations of the Alexandria Black History Museum
  • Over twenty years inspiring a diverse group of local children via the Martin Luther King Jr. poster context


Join the ASPBH today!
