Facility:African-American History Tour of Alexandria
Description:The journey of African-Americans from an enslaved people to leadership is a journey of hardship and triumph. Alexandria is uniquely qualified to tell that story. This walking tour is perfect for families, student groups, reunions, and group outings. You'll see Market Square, where human beings of dark coloration were bought and sold. It is near a prosperous merchant's home who owned 30 slaves. Nearby is an abolitionist Quaker's shop, who said of slavery, “it sickens my heart to reflect upon it.” And African-Americans staged America’s first sit-in here. Stops include Alexandria's Black History Resource Center, Franklin & Armfield Slave office, and African-American Heritage Park. Join us for a compelling tour that reflects our country’s struggle to live up to the goal of "liberty and justice for all."
