Slavery to Civil Rights: A Walking Tour of African-American Charleston

$20.00

Slavery to Civil Rights: A Walking Tour of African-American Charleston is the most complete and well-researched walking tour guidebook to African-American history in Charleston, SC. Illustrated with over 45 photographs and pictures, the book details the significant individuals and events that have shaped African-American history in the city from the 1600’s to the present day.

The guidebook begins with an introduction to Charleston’s central role in the trans-Atlantic slave trade to North America. The volume continues with colorful stories and biographies that reveal a seldom told side of Charleston’s history spanning the colonial, federal, and antebellum eras, followed by Reconstruction, Jim Crow and the Civil Rights Movement. With sections organized geographically along two separate routes, the guidebook can be read as a traditional book or used as a companion to visit actual historic locations in downtown Charleston.
