Sweet Chariot is a video scavenger hunt through the city of Philadelphia. Use the Sweet Chariot App and Map to uncover hidden stories of the African American struggle for freedom.

The Sweet Chariot Map and App contain pictorial and written clues to unlocking videos launched by augmented reality triggers. Users can access the walking tour map, eight immersive videos, and supplemental clues and context through the app. With these features, tourists and locals alike can reveal hidden moments in the landscape of historic Philadelphia. Murals, plaques, and other markers serve as signposts through time and through the neighborhood--ultimately revealing the resting place of the story's main character, Amelia Brown. Sweet Chariot serves as a monument to centuries of sorrow and joy in the city of Philadelphia.
