Please join us for our Unity in Community ride: Celebrating Boston’s Black History as we ride along The Black Heritage Trail®.
The Black Heritage Trail is a 1.6 mile route through the heart of Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. Most sites along the trail remain private residences. However, the final stops—the Abiel Smith School and the African Meeting House—are part of the Museum of African American History which is open to the public. The Black Heritage Trail showcases residences and community buildings associated with a Black community that thrived on, and near, the north slope of Beacon Hill before, during, and after the American Civil War. Throughout that time, this community struggled and organized for equal rights and access to equal education. Community members championed the movement to abolish slavery and even housed freedom seekers on their journey along the Underground Railroad.
