Black New England Heritage Tour Series.
Boston African American NHS (BOAF) is in partnership with the Museum of African American History(MAAH) on Beacon Hill where the guided and narrated Black Heritage Trail is run. It begins at the corner of Park Street and Beacon Street at the top of Boston Common under the 54th Regiment Robert Gould Shaw memorial. Summer hours are 10:30 a.m or 1:00 p.m for the 90 minute walking tour. Weather has to be good to run it.

It is a narrated walking or van tour beginning at Faneuil Hall, the site of slave auction blocks. Mr. Reidren also teaches a workshop in researching ancient African ancestors at the Freedom House on Warren Avenue in Roxbury.
Roxbury Trolley Bus Service
The Town of Hull just launched a trolley bus to bring beach goers into the town were the business are. They were losing foot traffic and there’s not much at the beach to buy.
AboutBlackBostonOnline proposes to install a dedicated Trolley Bus service for Black Boston and sell seat tickets to individuals. Passengers will board at Back Bay Station and the Franklin Park Zoo area. The tour will flow into the South End, Dudley Square, Grove Hall, Roxbury, the mansions of Highland Park area and to nearby areas of interest. The proposed trolley will run regular hours to the Black Doll Museum and the New Hampshire Black Heritage Trail.
We need your help ( and money ) to make this a sustainable effort. Book it for a Group now! A portion of the proceeds will fund future development of a dedicated Roxbury based Trolley bus tour so that Black Boston will have exactly what the downtown Boston area has – trolley bus tours that are full and running.
