Top Trip Ideas for Black History Month

by Maya Cohen

This year, make Black History Month come alive for your kids by taking a trip to commemorate the significant contributions made to the United States by the African-American community, and to honor the struggles experienced by many black Americans. Any one of these field trip ideas will engage your kids in history and make them eager to learn more.

Crenshaw Wall


5100 Crenshaw Boulevard
Los Angeles, California

Walk the length of this colorful mural, which spans a full city block in Los Angeles. This artistic colossus is a testament to African-American achievement and unity. The artwork was started over 30 years ago by a man named Tony Riddle, who began scribbling poetry on the side of the wall. His work inspired other artists to express their African pride by painting and writing all along the face of the wall. Your kids will marvel at the colors and stories, with each section revealing a portion of African-American history.
