February was African American History Month, and the Texas Historical Commission (THC) offers numerous travel resources to help Texans journey and discover these under-told stories, including the recently updated African American heritage travel guide.
African Americans in Texas: A Lasting Legacy features dozens of sites that are significant to the African American experience in Texas. More than a travel guide, the publication also offers the stories of these key sites.
The newly updated, full-color travel guide includes nine new site entries and is lavishly illustrated with photos, timelines, and maps.
A mobile app version of the guide is also available for free download. Part of the Texas Time Travel Tours app, the mobile tour offers a rich blend of images, videos, first-person interviews, maps, and other useful visitor information for exploring African American culture and heritage in Texas.
The travel guide and apps are organized around 10 heritage regions in the THC’s nationally award-winning tourism initiative, the Texas Heritage Trails Program. For more information about heritage travel opportunities in Texas, visit www.TexasTimeTravel.com, where you can download or order a free copy of the THC’s African Americans in Texas: A Lasting Legacy.
