This tour includes a number of important historic sites that are often not included in some of Savannah's popular tours that often present a whitewashed version of the city's antebellum history. This tour highlights Savannah's historic connection to slavery and segregation, as well as the agency and actions of the city's Black communities who challenged both. The tour begins with a monument made possible by Dr. Abigail Jordan, a prominent educator, and includes vital Black institutions as well as sites connected to slavery.
