Lesser known are the stories of Vermont’s African Americans. It is their stories and those of some of their fellow Vermonters that this guide explores.The trail takes you to Vermont museums and cultural sites where exhibits, films, tours and personal explorations will illuminate the lives of African Americans for whom the Green Mountain State was part of their identity. Welcome to the unfolding of this important history.Note: Blue markers represent museums and historic sites; purple markers represent Historic Markers.
