Cultural Tourism DC African American Heritage Trail
The African American Heritage Trail, Washington, DC identifies sites that are important in local and national history and culture. The trail consists of a searchable database and a free booklet. The database provides information about each of the trail's more than 200 sites. Use the search engine to find an individual site, or click on the links below to find sites in each of 15 distinct neighborhoods. Sites located outside those neighborhoods are included in the quadrant links (Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest). The database also indicates which sites have been marked with plaques.
The free booklet, organized into 15 neighborhood walking or driving tours, covers 98 sites, with maps and photos. You can download the booklet here.
