In Maysville, experience the perilous life of escaped slaves by visiting the National Underground Railroad Museum, and take a unique guided or driving tour retracing the footsteps of countless African-Americans who journeyed to freedom on the 'underground railroad'.

Visit the Kentucky Mammoth Cave National Park where the first tour guides and some of its most significant early explorers were African-Americans. In Bowling Green, take a walking tour of the ShakeRag Historic District to experience an early African-American neighborhood that stands as an important part of Kentucky black history.

Many other Kentucky black history sites in Louisville, Lexington, Northern Kentucky and elsewhere provide glimpses into the lives of African-Americans who have helped weave the rich cultural tapestry of this border state that reflects influences of both Northern and Southern culture.

Immerse yourself in Kentucky black history at the National Underground Railroad Museum or one of countless other African-American heritage sites in the Bluegrass State.
