The African American Heritage Trail Of Martha's Vineyard
The African American Heritage Trail of Martha’s Vineyard is a physical entity comprised of 30 sites dedicated to the formerly unrecognized contributions made by people of African descent to the history of the island. At each of these sites, a descriptive plaque has been placed. We are also a non-profit corporation, the African American Heritage Trail History Project, which is dedicated to the research and dissemination of the history of the African American people of Martha’s Vineyard. A vital part of that work is to identify sites and provide bronze plaques honoring that site as deeply significant to the story of people of color on Martha’s Vineyard
