African American Walking Tour of Downtown Manhattan

from $35
This unique three-part, 3 hours, walking tour will begin where Manhattan began – at the National Museum of the American Indian. This first leg of the tour will start at Bowling Green, where the first enslaved Africans started building the infrastructure of the city. On the second leg of the tour we will walk up Wall St to Federal Hall, We will end our tour at the African Burial Ground National Monument. We will cover about 20 of the 80 sites listed in my book – mainly south of the Brooklyn Bridge and east of Broadway. No other tour will give you the insight of this rich African American history, that covers the period of 1625-1865. We will pinpoint the locations where the Africans lived, worked, died, and worshiped. Every step on this tour honors and respects African Americans’ contributions and achievements in world history. Depending on the mood and convenience of the group we can stop for lunch or a snack at any time.
I'm a photographer thus, I may will take a few pictures of the guest on tour for free.
