Event Details

Historic Germantown and Black Writers Museum proudly presents the Black Lives in Germantown Walking Tour, a voyage into the heart of historic milestones, community life and contemporary advocacy in the movement for Black Lives. This walking tour is inspired by the social uprisings of 2020 and the pivotal role Germantown plays as a vibrant neighborhood of advocacy and activity. This is the first of many walking tours depicting the African American experience in Germantown and Northwest Philadelphia, from colonial era protests, to Victorian era activists to migration era landmarks to the modern day movements that shape this place as Freedoms Back Yard. Our tours are immersive storytelling experiences, with props and audio visuals, illustrating the stories of local black notables, black families, and outspoken voices, through a lens of activism, business, civics and community life. Content developed with Germantown Historical Society.

Tour is approximately 90 minutes
