AfAm Heritage Trail.png

Welcome to the African American Heritage Trail of Kansas City, MO. The Trail is “virtual,” as the number and land area of sites along the Trail are too large to walk. However, maps will guide you to neighborhoods and clusters of sites where you can create your own Trail experience.

The African American Heritage Trail of Kansas City, Mo has been driven by community input and will continue to grow in size and scope. Please check back often as we will be adding more sites and people regularly, as the African American History of Kansas City is rich, deep, and significant to growth of the community.  Learn More
