Tour the Trail of Enslaved Africans
Journey into Richmond’s history to visit the sites where few monuments exist. These are the sites that tell the other half of the story; the story that lives between the pages of history books in red, white and black. Techniques employed include call and response, vocal and instrumental music, narrative presentations and dialogue. Participants will have the chance to immerse themselves in the past that impacts our perspectives today. Call the Society at 644-3900.
