Damarus was fabulous and even though we froze through the tour would not leave it. Thank you
Everyone needs to know this stuff.
This tour is amazing, we look at New York City through a totally different angle. Understanding that New York became what it is now because of enslaved Africans toil is something everyone should now. Not only history nerds, slavery was not a Southern institution, it was part of American history as a whole.
This was a deeply historical and densely informative tour. Having said that, it is also incredibly moving and touches your soul. It was not easy to hear about all the injustices that occurred and how NYC prospered through the slave trade, but I’d recommend for people to go and learn and ponder how we should value each other.
I was really happy that we took this tour. Our tour guide was very good. She told the history of New York in such a meaningful and impactful way. I even learned some new things that I did not know before. 2.5 hour tour felt like 30 minutes. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Demaris was amazing! Great tour!!! She was so knowledgeable and interacted with the entire group. A must do when visiting NYC.
