Boston's Black community has been on the move politically, socially, and artistically since 1638. The Discover Roxbury semi-annual trolley tour travels through three centuries of Boston's historic Black neighborhoods. It follows the progression of the Black churches, reveals the struggles of the Civil Rights movement, and introduces participants to the movers, shakers, and strivers in Roxbury's Black History. Highlights include the former residences of Martin Luther King, Jr and Malcolm X, and a visit to the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists.
