African-American Patriots Tour

If 18th-century African-American patriot Crispus Attucks could tell you his life story and rebellion in pre-Revolutionary Boston, what would he say? Tales of intrigue and bravery, poetry and defiance by black Bostonians unfold during this 90-minute walking tour of the Freedom Trail. Led by a costumed guide, visitors view history through the eyes of African-American revolutionaries such as Crispus Attucks, Phillis Wheatley, Prince Hall, Peter Salem, and others.
