African-American Heritage

AFRICAN AMERICAN HERITAGE TRAIL AND NATIONAL AFRICAN AMERICAN ARCHIVES

While many different cultures have impacted Mobile's history, the influences of the African American community have been captured and remembered through the African American Heritage Trail. The trail stretches across the city and highlights important events and locations. The African-American Heritage Trail's primary objective is to share Mobile's multicultural legacy by introducing visitors to over forty such historic sites and venues as:

  • Africatown, where African survivors from the Clotilda, the last slave ship to enter the US in 1860, landed
  • Historic and significant schools, churches, storefronts and home sites, such as Hank Aaron
  • Home of the entrepreneur Dave Patton, who helped construct the Saenger Theatre, Mobile High School (now Murphy High School) and many roads in Mobile
  • The Civil Rights advocates integral to the desegregation of the city's schools, workforce, and public offices.
  • The  Emerson Institute, a school that created a diverse arts curriculum for the African American community despite repression during the Jim Crow era
