Step into the past in Shockoe Bottom, one of Richmond’s oldest historic districts, to explore the struggles for freedom that helped shape America. Join us for this free tour for K-12 teachers and discover stories of Richmond’s earliest Indigenous inhabitants, enslaved people fighting to be free, Thomas Jefferson’s historic Statute of Religious Freedom, Dr. Mary Walker’s demands for equality for women and more. We’ll visit Richmond’s canal walk, check out beautiful murals and visit the Henry “Box” Brown monument.
Coordinators will contact you in advance of the program with your meeting location. Comfortable walking shoes, and a water bottle are recommended. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
