This tour provides an engagement of Black History in downtown Indianapolis and the IUPUI campus. It is called the Overground Railroad Tour, because these important contributions are often in plain sight but little recognized and celebrated. This walkable tour of Indianapolis, Indiana Avenue, and IUPUI explicitly covers the contributions of the Black communities that shaped the downtown region and the historic contributions of Black students and faculty to IUPUI's campus.
