African-American Heritage Trail: Part II

A series of sites dedicated to telling the story of the African-American experience on Martha’s Vineyard and the contributions made by people of color to the history of this Island. The Trail covers pre-revolutionary America, the years before the civil war, the involvement of the Wampanoag tribe, and the Shearer Cottage, a family-owned and operated with pride since 1903. This is the first guesthouse on Martha’s Vineyard to cater to African American visitors!

Part II is a 2-hour tour of the towns of Oak Bluffs and Edgartown.
