More than a decade in the making, 14 Black Belt counties in Alabama are now officially designated a National Heritage Area, which could pave the way for new funding and tourism opportunities.

President Joe Biden on Jan. 6 signed into law the designation of the Black Belt National Heritage Area.

U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell of Alabama, who has long advocated for the designation, shepherded through the House of Representatives the Alabama Black Belt National Heritage Act, which was included in broader legislation signed by the president.
