Listen to America's heroes tell their stories, visit the places where they stayed, walk where they walked, escape to freedom on the Underground Railroad, make fresh butter in a jar, sing familiar songs, learn their hidden meanings, hear about the Emancipation Oak, learn coded spirituals used by runaway slaves, and more! Make a day of it when you combine your walking tour experience with a trip to the Children's Museum of Virginia and a picnic in one of Olde Towne's beautiful parks. Want us to come to you? We can tailor an in-house experience to your students course of study, with interesting characters and activities they will never forget!
WE HAVE SUBJECT MATTER FOR ALL AGES-KINDERGARTEN TO COLLEGE
We are expecting a busy 2021-22 school year. In addition to an experience tailored to your specific interest, we offer an African American History Walk year-round. But, dates fill up quickly in February. Portsmouth students always receive a discount and the added benefit of seeing how their own city's history mirrors the history of our nation.
