presented by the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire, Inc. and the Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail. The PBHT, now under the umbrella of the BHTNH, was founded in 1995 to preserve, celebrate and honor the history and culture of the African-American community in Portsmouth and the New Hampshire region. With distinctive bronze plaques that identify the community from its colonial-era African Burying Ground to the modern Civil Rights Movement, the Trail is proud to serve as a model across the country on what it means to raise public awareness and appreciation for a region not known for its Black history.
