San Antonio, TX

San Antonio is home to the nation's largest MLK Day parade in January, setting the scene not only for Black History Month, but also for yearlong celebrations of the city's diversity. Travelers can start with a stop by Martin Luther King Park to see a recently added statue titled "Spheres of Reflection," which showcases the words and phrases most used by Dr. King. The Witte Museum, Texas' oldest museum, is also worth a visit, especially with the new "Black Cowboys: An American Story" exhibit, which opened in November 2021 and uncovers the little-known history of Black people in the Wild West.
