This February, in honor of Black History Month, join with the National Park Foundation as it celebrates and supports the wealth of African American history to be found in our national parks. From historic sites that preserve the legacies of the Tuskegee Airmen and Frontiersmen at Nicodemus, to the park units preserving the memory and the lives of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mary McLeod Bethune and George Washington Carver, our national parks are an exemplary place to learn about, re-discover and pay tribute to African American history.
Established in 2001, NPF’s African American Experience Fund (AAEF) strives to support, commemorate and connect all Americans to the considerable contributions of African Americans throughout our nation’s history. Join us by visiting these sites and supporting the African American Experience Fund. You interest and financial gifts ensure future generations will be able to experience some of America’s most magnificent cultural treasures and learn about our diverse American history.
