Large Apartment Building Coming to the 5000 Block of Springfield?

    Large Apartment Building Coming to the 5000 Block of Springfield? - OCF Realty
    We were rather surprised, last month, when we learned about a plan for twelve units on 51st Street in Southwest Philadelphia, south of the Media/Elwyn tracks. At the time, we noted that it might be a tough sell to get students to live in a building in this location, as nobody really gets too excited about living "on the other side of the tracks."

    Penn student researchers dig into the University's unaddressed ties to the slave trade
    In recent years, as various universities have stepped forth to acknowledge early institutional ties to slavery, Penn has remained steadfast in asserting that it does not have a history of direct involvement with slavery or the slave trade. Now, new undergraduate research places this assertion into doubt.

    OG History is a Teen Vogue series where we unearth history not told through a white, cisheteropatriarchal lens. In this installment, writer Jenn M. Jackson explores the radical nature of Martin Luther King Jr., whose legacy, she says, was whitewashed over time. The earliest lesson I learned about Martin Luther King Jr.

    Community members campaign for integration of Girard College in Philadelphia, PA, USA, 1965-68
