African American Heritage Tour - A Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Celebration Event

Celebrating Frederick Douglass' 200th birthday! Join us in honoring Frederick Douglass' bicentennial in 2018 by taking an African American heritage tour.

Tour Annapolis with a period dressed guide on this unique walking tour that explores African American heritage. African Americans have, for over 300 years, comprised a significant portion of the population of the state of Maryland, our county and the city of Annapolis.

During colonial times, the labor of both slaves and free blacks was the cornerstone upon which the tobacco economy was built. In the nineteenth century, Maryland was home to more free African Americans than any other state. Twentieth century Maryland continues to grow because of the important contributions made by her African American citizens. This tour is an award winning African American tour in Maryland.
