Thanks again to for honoring . They featured our founder, Al Wylie, and our very own, as “Unsung Heroes” during the COVID 19 Pandemic! The article reads as followed: “The AFRO took time to honor the  “Unsung Heroes” of the COVID-19 pandemic at Valley Mansion by Martin’s on Aug. 6. The media company commended morticians for the critical and often under recognized role they played in helping families navigate the loss of a loved one during a global pandemic. Albert P. Wylie, founder of Wylie Funeral Homes, highlighted the support that Baltimore’s Black funeral homes provide to each other. He spoke on how each business steps in to provide supplies, services and resources when another business encounters obstacles.  “No one can help us but us,” said Wylie. “It’s imperative that we continue to stick together and be unsung heroes.”

"Embracing the power of unity and freedom as we commemorate Juneteenth. Today, we honor the resilience, courage, and triumph of those who fought for emancipation and equality. Let's remember the significance of this day, reflect on our shared history, and continue the journey towards justice. Juneteenth stands as a reminder that progress requires collective effort, empathy, and education. Together, let's amplify Black voices, promote inclusivity, and dismantle systemic oppression. Today, we celebrate freedom, but also acknowledge the work that remains. May this Juneteenth inspire us to strive for a future where everyone can truly thrive, united in equality."

“Neighborhood Al” • Albert P. Wylie, born in Baltimore on April 11, 1946, has become a significant public servant figure in the Baltimore community. After growing up in Baltimore, he decided to attend the University of the District of Columbia where he majored in Mortuary Science. Right out of college, his first job was with William Brown Funeral Home. In 1993, after years of service with Brown Funeral Home, Mr. Wylie decided to open his own funeral home, Wylie Funeral Home, on Gilmore Street in the heart of Baltimore City. A significant fact is that his mother loaned him the money to start the funeral home. Since then, Mr. Wylie relocated his city location to Mount Street and opened a second location in Baltimore County. Mr. Wylie is a living legend in Baltimore and his name will forever serve his Baltimore community.

Ms. Williams, the first African American woman in Maryland to become a licensed mortician, was well-known and well-respected in her southwest Baltimore neighborhood. After passing the mortician licensing exam in March 1920, she went on to build a thriving funeral home business that endured for 40 years. 
It is believed that Williams worked as a waitress and possibly apprenticed with a neighborhood funeral director before taking the licensing exam. Though other women in the surrounding community served as undertakers, many had inherited the job (and the required license) from their husbands. 
She (and her business partner and husband, Clarence Williams) probably buried more than 10,000 people from families who lived in the area around her southwest Baltimore funeral establishment. Many people that attended her funeral had probably done business with her over those years.   
Many at her funeral remembered her for her reputation as a good neighbor. Said one of the attending ministers: “She was a good, Christian woman who was a friend to those in need. She fed the hungry, she clothed the naked and she sheltered the homeless.” 
Ms. Williams was a founding member of the Funeral Directors and Morticians Association of Maryland. She is buried in the historic Mt. Auburn Cemetery.

Prince Greer • In Honor of Black History Month, we recognize the first documented black embalmer in U.S. History. The most interesting account of Civil War embalming surgeons is the strange and interesting story of Prince Greer. Prince Greer was the personal slave of a cavalry officer who was killed during battle. Prince took it upon himself to return the body of his former master to his estate and contacted Dr. W. P. Cornelius, a successful undertaker from Nashville. Dr. Cornelius arranged to have the body of Greer’s master shipped back to his Texas home. Around the same time, Dr. Cornelius found himself in a dilemma for his assistant, a young surgeon named Dr. E. D. Lewis, who had been trained in the embalming arts by Dr. Holmes himself, decided that embalming the dead was not the occupation for him. Prince Greer had remained on the Cornelius’s premises and indicated he would do anything to secure his room and board. Dr. Cornelius taught Greer the embalming arts and wrote: Prince Greer appeared to enjoy embalming so much that he himself became an expert, kept on at work embalming during the balance of the war and was very successful at it. It was but a short time before he could raise an artery as quickly as anyone. He was always careful, always of course coming to me in a difficult case. He remained with me until I quit the business in 1871." Prince Greer was the first documented black embalmer in U.S. history.

For many in the African American community, funeral services and expressions of mourning contain a theme of celebration, rather than the somber emotions associated with death in other cultural settings. This attitude grew out of the period of slavery, when most slave owners would not allow slaves to gather for funerals. During this dark time, death was often seen as freedom and a reason to celebrate amidst the grieving. Many believed that the deceased’s soul returned to their African homeland. From this arose the concept of Homegoing, which survives today, although it is now seen as the soul entering heaven or joining with ancestors. After slavery was abolished, the newly freed slaves could openly gather to honor their dead, and the opportunity to honor their loved ones became an important time in their community. Extravagant celebrations of the deceased’s life became common, including music and dancing, helping fuel the growth of the Homegoing experience.

He was a prophet and a genius, a bold visionary who could lead America into a better tomorrow through a deep and abiding faith. The heart aches to think of what could have been achieved had he lived even one more month. The magnitude of the loss is incomprehensible to this day. Dr. King is even more inspirational the deeper you dig. A Baptist minister, Dr. King connected the love for mankind that he found in his faith, along with forgiveness, to justice. In his view, the other side of love is justice, and there is no justice without equality. He said, “Nonviolence is absolute commitment to the way of love. Love is not emotional bash; it is not empty sentimentalism. It is the active outpouring of one’s whole being into the being of another.” To Dr. King, his calling was to use the gospel to raise up the lowest among us. May the words Dr. King spoke half a century ago inspire those still fighting for the dream he imagined for all of us. Rest in power, Dr. King.
