Title: Asheville Black Cultural Heritage Trail

URL: https://bcht.exploreasheville.com/

Description: The Black Cultural Heritage Trail honors and preserves the rich heritage of Asheville's Black community. The BCHT opened in December 2023 with sites in Asheville's downtown, Southside, and River Arts District sections. Work towards the BCHT began in 2010, when residents of Asheville’s historically Black East End neighborhood proposed a trail to celebrate Black cultural heritage. River Front Development Group, a Black community development nonprofit founded in Asheville in 1996, committed to achieving these projects. River Front Development Group focused on co-creating and sharing narratives of often overlooked Black Ashevillians.
