3-Day African American Heritage Tour

3 Day African American Heritage

This 3 Day African American Heritage Tour of Washington DC will look at the brave men and women who led the struggle for freedom and equality in the United States. Before the creation of this country as an independent nation, slaves worked in the fields and plantations under tremendous oppression until the end of the Civil War. Great men like Frederick Douglass and others were influential in the fight against this evil and spent their lives working against slavery and other ills which black people faced daily. More recently, honorable men like the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mary Bethune rallied people across the land to fight against injustices as the Civil Rights Movement gained a permanent place in America.
