Slavery Walking Tours

  • Tour Guide Training Program

    We provide training for tour guides in how to lead interpretive tours related to slavery. Each trainee attends a tour before being interviewed; if selected he or she assists at three tours, is trained, co-leads one tour and then is observed for one tour before leading a tour on his or her own. The goal is to recruit and train six guides in 2017, with a focus on recruiting young adults of color. Once trained, each tour guide would receive an honorarium for each tour.

  • Audio Guides for Walking Tours

    Help us buy an audio system for one of our most popular programs -- the Slavery Walking Tours. College Hill is steep and with traffic noise it is hard to hear, especially for large groups or those with hearing challenges. We want to buy a system that will give each participant a headphone so he/she can clearly hear the tour guide. We plan to use these guide in the museum when it is operative as well, making it possible for us to have larger groups and, again, especially helpful for people who have difficulty hearing.
