Other opportunities to learn more about Daytona Beach's Black history:

Black Heritage Trail

To most residents and visitors, Daytona Beach is best known as the “World's Most Famous Beach." But much of the city’s history, especially that of its African American citizens, is little known and even less recognized. The Daytona Beach Black Heritage Trail is designed to illustrate the many aspects of the city’s black heritage.

Share the Heritage Trail – African American Heritage

The Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau has created a Share The Heritage Trail, which encourages visitors to explore the Daytona Beach area’s rich African American history, historical sites and legendary legacies. View their map and learn more about these influential local Black leaders.
