Black History Month: Exploring African American Heritage

Last edited 3/1/2018

As America’s storyteller, the National Park Service preserves and interprets important places that teach us about our nation’s history and culture, so that future generations can learn from the past. The many African American heritage sites protected and maintained by the National Park Service honor the contributions African Americans made to the nation. To help celebrate Black History month, explore a few of the more than 25 national park sites online and in person.
