Artists, advocates, veterans, founders of our community and more, Philadelphia’s Greek American community has a rich past and present. The Greek American Heritage Society of Philadelphia has partnered with Cosmos Philly to tell the stories of our community – the individuals, the families, the organizations, and the churches that helped formed who we are today. We are out interviewing the members of our community and sharing their stories and experiences.
The ongoing project was introduced in 2013 as a way to communicate and preserve our journey as Greek Americans in the Philadelphia area for future generations to access and see. A digital library is being built that will house the interview series for families and their ancestors interested in learning about how our community formed, where we came from, and how we contribute to the betterment of American society via our community, the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
