Top Trip Ideas for Black History Month

CongoSquare

Congo Square


Armstrong Park
New Orleans, Louisiana

Congo Square in New Orleans remains an important cultural and historical landmark, because this is where slaves were bought and sold. However, this section of the French Quarter also remains a symbol of hope and unity, since slaves used the square as a place to gather, dance, and sing. Congo Square is still home to theater and dance productions that support African-American life and achievements. Take your family to a play at the Congo Square Theater to commemorate and honor Black History Month.
