The United States Civil Rights Trail was unveiled in 2018, during the 50th anniversary year of Rev. Martin Luther King’s assassination and the 155th anniversary year of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
The primary focus of this travel planner is to connect the Trail’s most significant sites and destinations, reference life stories, events, people and places along the Trail and generate a demand for unforgettable travel experiences.
The five pillars to be emphasized in this year’s magazine are:
- The Year of Education
- Personal Stories
- New Experiences
- Minority Owned Restaurants
- Tour Operator Testimonials
