African American History Month: Vermont's Trail


VERMONT AFRICAN AMERICAN HERITAGE TRAIL
 
Vermont’s history is defined by its people: Native occupation dating back 10,000 years, citizens powering pivotal Revolutionary War events and providing crucial Civil War support, and U.S. presidents, Senators and leaders whose work contributed to the foundation of our country. Lesser known are the stories of Vermont’s African Americans. It is their stories and those of some of their fellow Vermonters that this guide explores. The trail takes you to Vermont museums and cultural sites where exhibits, films, tours and personal explorations will illuminate the lives of African Americans for whom the Green Mountain State was part of their identity. Others of these historic places chronicle eras and events significant to the journey of all African Americans.
