African American Heritage Trail Advisory Committee

Advisory Committee Members for Asheville’s African American Heritage Trail

Committee members for Asheville’s African American Heritage Trail advise on the trail’s themes, route, design and featured content for the project throughout the development process. They also serve as connectors, promoting awareness of the trail and will advise on ways to activate the project within the community once it is complete.

With deep local knowledge and varying age demographics, committee members represent an array of lived and professional experience, from history, culture, education and the arts, to Black business owners, consultants, champions, and community organizers, to descendants of some of Asheville’s most influential Black residents.
