African-American history ride @ Jones Point Park

Start off your Memorial Day by riding to sites associated with Alexandria’s extraordinary African-American history. Learn about Benjamin Banneker, considered the “first black man of science.” See the Freedom House Museum, where one of the country’s largest slave-trading companies used to be. Honor the sacrifices of the African-American soldiers buried in Alexandria National Cemetery.

This family-friendly ride is organized by Alexandria’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. Details and registration at http://bit.ly/MemDayRide.
