Black History Trail II – this air-conditioned riding tour offers a peek inside the official Underground Rail Road ( Beacon Hill ), and an introduction to the Boston Museum of African American history, and you’ll see the church where the first African American Methodist Episcopal Society was founded, but that’ not all.
We’ll take you to the Massachusetts State Capitol Building where the Robert Gould Shaw 54th Regiment monument is a major point of interest on this tour. This Beacon Hill area was built by Early African descendants living there in the 18th Century.
The African American legacy is embedded in the hills and neighborhood structures. A photo of Malcolm X when he was a teenage for the Parker House Hotel dining room is on the route. This highlight is seldom seen by most Boston tourists. And his photo is mounted beside a JFK and Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy photo essay showing the young John Jackie in love. It is Boston folklore that he proposed to her at Parker House. We will leave East Beacon Hill for greener pastures and less city grit. The word is We go to the South End neighborhood to explore significant African American heritage points of interest and sightsee more of the City of Boston. The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad vertical monument and memorial park is there, near the office of Mel King and Tent City. Mr. King was the first African American to win a mayoral primary and run in the final election for Mayor of Boston. An imposing statue of A. Phillip Randolph introduces his history in the area. We will show you the most prominent Black-owned businesses on the route. Our destination is Nubian Square, the Malcolm X house and a Black art museum. But there is so much going on in Nubian Square, the heart of Black community and the geographic center of Boston to show and tell you about.
