“A tour focused on Black history”
Blind spots in Alexandria's historical tourism offerings inspired John Chapman, a fourth generation Alexandrian, to launch Manumission Tour Company (“manumission” means release from slavery). Manumission offers several 90-minute walking tours, including “Still’s Underground Railroad.” Based on abolitionist William Still's 1872 book 'The Underground Railroad,' the tour recounts the stories of several fugitive slaves from Alexandria and ponders who might have helped them on their road to freedom.
