|Asheville Black Cultural Heritage Trail Unveiled
New Trail Marks the Resilience of Asheville’s Black Community
Local leaders, government officials, and community advocates gathered last Friday at Black Wall Street to witness the unveiling of the Asheville Black Cultural Heritage Trail, marking the culmination of years of extensive community efforts. This trail celebrates the dignity, humanity, and agency of Black people from all backgrounds who built resilient communities and fostered social change in Asheville.
Made possible through a $500,000 Tourism Product Development Fund (TPDF) investment in 2018, the Asheville Black Cultural Heritage Trail is now open to the public, inviting residents and visitors to walk through history, reflect on the resilience of Black communities, and gain insight into how their contributions have shaped Asheville and Buncombe County.
