Several area students are back in Erie after spending a week on the road, learning about black history.

The group, led by Gary Horton, stopped in Atlanta and Alabama before traveling to the nation’s capitol.

The annual field trip gives students, ages 12 through 16 an opportunity to experience black history in America instead of of just reading about it in the history book.

Students had a chance to walk in the footsteps of historical American figures and all of the students said it was a true inspiration.

The group returned to Erie Saturday afternoon
