|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on November 30, 2021 at 12:00 pm

$5 – $10

Put on your winter coats and walking shoes for an informative tour around Old City at noon on Monday, November 29 and Tuesday, November 30. Join us as we take a 40-minute walk around town to examine the legacies of first-generation Africans who made a way out of no way to survive a city which sought to enslave themselves and their future generations for life. Together, we will visit sites that set American history in motion yet receive little to no recognition to this day. Dress warmly and bring your curiosity!
