Bus Tour of African-American Historical and Cultural Sites in Winston-Salem

November 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

There will be life after the election, and here’s a cool activity you won’t want to miss!

Visit a part of Winston-Salem that you may never have seen.

· Sit in the exact same seat as African-Americans of Old Salem sat when they first heard a reading of the Emancipation Proclamation.
· See an original “shotgun” house in the location where it is now slated for renovation.
· Visit the neighborhood sometimes called “Black Buena Vista” and learn how location can affect property values in ways you may not have considered.
· Find the site of the strike at RJ Reynolds Tobacco led by African-American women.

The All God’s Children Ministry Team of Knollwood Baptist Church invites you on a bus tour of African-American historical and cultural sites in Winston-Salem. The tour will be led by Cheryl Harry from Triad Cultural Arts and the Hidden Town Project at Old Salem, and she is an excellent guide! Sites will include St. Phillip’s Heritage Center at Old Salem, the Biggers murals at Winston-Salem State University, art museums, business history, and George Black’s home.

This is a repeat of a tour held in July which received enthusiastic reviews from participants. You do not have to be a Knollwood member to participate.

The tour will take place from 9 AM to 1 PM on Saturday, November 10, departing and returning to Knollwood’s parking lot. Cost is $5 per person or $15 per family. Seating is limited, so email AllGodsChildrenKBC@gmail.com soon to make your reservation. We will reply with additional details. Reservations must be received by Wednesday, Nov. 7.
