The Black men and women represented on Mount Auburn's African American Heritage Trail are freedom seekers and reformers, lawyers and legislators, athletes and business owners, musicians and authors. Born in the 1800s, these individuals achieved success in politics, business, literature, and the arts. We will learn about the lives of multiple important individuals buried in the cemetery as we celebrate their life and legacy. 

Please note, this walk will venture on and off the paved path. 

Registration is mandatory. One registration is good for one individual. Participants will receive an email with information about the meeting site prior to the event. The waitlist means your participation is not confirmed.
