Self-Guided Tour

Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail


The listings are arranged in chronological order so the arm-chair reader can follow Portsmouth’s Black history through the centuries. As a result, the corresponding numbers on the map do not follow a convenient walking route. Readers are encouraged either to visit a selection of sites clustered near one another, or to walk one of the topical trails listed below, each of which follows the shortest route between its sites.
