On behalf of the Dora Franklin Finley African-American Heritage Trail (DFFAAHT), you are invited to go back in time and explore the unique history of Mobile, Alabama.
We are a city entrenched in struggles, challenges and triumphs steeped in Mobile's African-American culture, aptly described as "unique and one of a kind".
Journey through history so rich and thorough and a time when European and African explorers first landed on the shores of the Gulf Coast and began populating this land we now know as, the United States of America.
You will travel through time, more than 300 years back in history and brought into the modern age of today's diverse community.
We thank you in advance for allowing us to introduce you to such vital, pivotal and essential history designed for all to learn from. In the words of our late founder, "you can't know where you're going, if you don't know where you've been."
Through the Dora Franklin Finley African-American Heritage Trail experience, all participants will develop a taste for the rich gumbo of ethnicity as revealed by Mobile's past and will enhance their lifelong understanding of the African-American’s role in Mobile history.
