The most extensive mapping of African-American historic locations in any city will be available to visitors to San Francisco through a collaboration between ReUNION: Education-Arts-Heritage and San Francisco Travel.

The African-American Freedom Trail is being displayed as part of the exhibition Students and Scholars Marching for Civil Rights: the 50th anniversary of the United San Francisco Freedom Movement at the Fairmont Hotel at California and Mason Streets.

It is also part of the curriculum resources for the ReUNION series Our Roots Run Deep, which explores the depth of African-American heritage nationwide.

The collaboration was facilitated by San Francisco NAACP President Dr. Amos C. Brown Jr., senior pastor of Third Baptist Church. Along with leaders of the San Francisco African-American Chamber of Commerce, Economic Opportunities Council, A. Philip Randolph Institute and Baptist Ministers Conference, Dr. Brown met with leaders of San Francisco Travel to remind them of the commitment of the hospitality industry back in 1963 to be inclusive in employment, contracting and marketing.
