Alexandria, Virginia’s Black history experience is engaging visitors with seven new trails and tours across the city. It offers from a waterfront heritage trail to a tour telling stories of the Underground Railroad.
Patricia Washington, president of Visit Alexandria said, “There’s so much more to the sites and stories that are great educational opportunities for those who are really looking to deepen and expand their awareness. There’s increased interest, increased urgency to understand our history in a more inclusive way.”
As per wtop.com, “The list of seven historical sites has been in the making for years and is more timely now than ever, Washington said, as the U.S. reckons with systemic racism and social injustices.
