Overview

In the early 1800s, Charleston was named the Home of African Slavery, and while this was a dubious distinction to be sure, the history of how this came about is fascinating and enlightening. This two-hour, 1.5 mile walking tour explains why slavery evolved in Charleston the way it did, exploring Gullah folklore, slave uprisings and the role that free blacks played during this time in history. Interestingly enough, Charleston was home to free persons of color who owned slaves themselves. Tours depart daily at 1:30pm from 45 South Market Street. Save USD3 by booking online.
