aaht.jpgThe state of Louisiana's Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism has announced the opening of Louisiana's African American Heritage Trail. It's a collection of 26 sites across the state that showcase the talents and culture of African Americans to the rest of the world.

So far, the only three sites in Acadiana on the trail are The Creole Heritage Folk Life Center in Opelousas, The African American Museum in St. Martinville and Lake Charles' Black Heritage Festival.

According to the Lieutenant governor's office, plans are underway to expand the trail:
The trail will be expanded in future phases as existing sites' abilities to cater to tourists are enhanced, and as new sites are identified. Sites on the first phase were chosen due to their historic and cultural significance and their current ability to cater to travelers and locals.
