Welcome!

VisitBlackHistory.com (VBH), is an online community for those seeking or desiring to share information about African American historical experiences and educational programming. There is a demonstrated need for cultural resources that can educate families on the contributions of African Americans in America. Now, more than ever Black museums, historical sites, and cultural centers will play an integral role in the healing, reconciliation, and empowerment of our nation’s citizens. Our goal is to sustain a digital ecosystem that will affirm, amplify, and activate Black history spaces and those who visit them.

African American museums, archives, monuments, statues, sculptures, heritage festivals, tours, buildings, documentary films, and stage plays are examined and celebrated on the VBH website.
