The Dallas area is home to one million African American citizens, but very few know much about the history of the early settlers and communities for people of color.


This entertaining and educational tour will explore this almost forgotten history by visiting many of the sites that were instrumental in the development of vibrant African American communities throughout the city.


This three hour tour will visit over twenty historic sites that trace the path of the African American journey in one of America’s largest cities.


You will learn about the two largest settlements following the civil war, the role of African Americans in the formation of Deep Ellum, and how the southern Dallas migration changed the face of the city forever.


You will experience our life changing tour from the comfort of a coach bus and afterwards there is an optional lunch at an African American restaurant, so bring your lunch money.
