Timeshare Travel - February is Black History Month
Below are 3 of the most popular museums where Black History Month is exhibited all year round.
MoAD also introduces visitors to the idea of the original African diaspora - the original movement of Homo Sapiens (from the earliest human remains found in Africa) - to eventually all inhabited regions.
The museum asks visitors "when did you first realize you were African?" The museum espouses the scientifically accepted idea of “panethnicity” wherein all humans have a common African origin. The museum focuses, among other things, on the African music, and its legacy in other musical forms. Its current main exhibition is the Kinsey Collection which offers an inspirational journey through five centuries of African American history, culture and heritage.
San Francisco timeshare rentals start at just $125/night.
The exhibits feature over 100 life-like wax figures and scenes, a full model slave ship exhibit which portrays the 400 year history of the Atlantic slave trade, an exhibit on the role of youth in making history, and a Maryland room highlighting the contributions of outstanding Marylanders to African American history.
Featuring special lighting, sound effects and animation you’ll see such national figures as Harriet Tubman, Billie Holiday, and Martin Luther King, Jr., bring history to life.
Stay in a budget-friendly Wyndham Old Town Alexandria timeshare rental just a hour from Baltimore for as low as $64/night.
Weeksville is a historic settlement of national significance and one of the few remaining historical sites of pre-Civil War African American communities. The Heritage Center, a 12,400 square-foot site site, comprising the historic Hunterfly Houses and an open grassy area, focuses on arts and crafts, literacy and historical preservation.
New York City timeshare rentals are available in mid-town Manhattan and start at just $143/night.
