There are so many historic, significant and special places in Galveston. This is especially true when it comes to African-American history.

From the birthplace of Juneteenth to historic churches and influential Black citizens, the island is teeming with living history. Recently, the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau launched an interactive tour app that allows residents and visitors to explore African-American history in living color.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations director for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
