It’s time to spin the block with GirlTrek and Black History Bootcamp. On October 1st we will launch a new 21-day series of Black History Bootcamp—Black Neighborhoods. In this next season, we will explore 21 of the most notable Black addresses and the neighborhoods that surround them.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
1. WHAT IS THE BLACK HISTORY BOOTCAMP: BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS EDITION ABOUT?
In a year where we focused on organizing in the Blackest neighborhoods in the country, we’re dedicating the next season of #blackhistorybootcamp to Black neighborhoods. Over the course of 21 days, we will get to know the voices, the stories, and the music that shaped these neighborhoods by taking a walk down famous streets in Black history. Because telling the stories of our neighborhoods is telling the story of us.

5. WHERE DO I WALK? IS THERE A WALK HAPPENING NEAR ME FOR BLACK HISTORY BOOTCAMP?
Sis, the most radical thing you can do for yourself during this season of Black History Bootcamp is walk straight out of your front door and into your neighborhood. Be the Harriet of your own neighborhood and consider walking with your neighbors, the ladies from the church choir or your coworkers. If you're looking for women walking in your area, you can visit the GirlTrek Map and connect with GirlTrek City nearest you.
We're encouraging women to start walking crews within their own neighborhoods. Click here to learn how to start a GirlTrek crew in your neighborhood.
Thanks for being the Harriet in your community and for loving the movement.
