The Marshall Historic Landmark Preservation Board will debut a 30-minute video Thursday that showcases the city’s African American heritage. It’s called “The Buard History Trail.”

The video is a montage of interviews and historic photos that highlight the local Civil Rights leaders whose work altered America’s racial divide. The trail shows some of the places where this history happened, and makes the case that African Americans made a remarkable contribution to Marshall’s growth and development.
