We've had such an amazing journey traveling through some of the greatest black history landmarks all over the country.

With your help and advice, we've stumble across everything from the touching (Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site), to the quirky (The James Brown Statue in Augusta, Georgia) to the inspiring (National Cowboys of Color Museum and Hall of Fame, Texas).

You can see our full list of over a hundred places to visit with your family below. Keep letting us in mind when you come across a new one, and let us know.
