Traveling can be an inspiring experience, and as we move through the month of February—Black History Month—it’s important to take the time to recognize the significant contributions of African Americans to our nation’s history.
There are many places in the U.S. that offer an opportunity to learn more about the history of African Americans. Sites like the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C., the African American Civil War Memorial in D.C., or the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail in Alabama all give visitors a greater understanding of the African American experience. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Black social commentators at ThatSister have compiled a list of U.S cities where people can learn about both Black culture and history.
For those interested in Black culture, there are areas such as Archie Spigner Park and the Sandy Ground Community and Historical Society. While those wishing to learn more about the experiences of Black Americans can visit places like the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, located in Harlem, and Louis Armstrong’s house, in Queens.
