“A tour focused on Black history”

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.
