New Apartment Tower Being Built on Top of Philly's Oldest African American Cemetery?

It is believed that an African American burial ground exists on this site, where an apartment tower is set to replace a car wash. It is hoped that it gets the appropriate respect and honor. See, for ex., http://www.philly.com/philly/news/pennsylvania/philadelphia/oldest-african-american-graveyard-in-west-philadelphia-lies-beneath-proposed-apartments-20180125.html.
