The Sweet Chariot App is an Augmented Reality (AR) scavenger hunt in historic Philadelphia. 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, opening a window onto the African American struggle for freedom.

The Sweet Chariot App launches a diagrammatic map. This map contains pictorial and written clues to unlocking videos launched by augmented reality triggers. 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. Amelia's home is in Weccacoe Playground, which was once a burial ground for African-Americans. It, and Sweet Chariot, serve as monuments to centuries of sorrow and joy in the city of Philadelphia.
