Black & Blue Tour with Robert Porter - 3 p.m. Feb. 8, Feb. 15 (Part Two) and April 5
This distinctive walking tour provides an African-American history of the University, with emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. The Black and Blue tour contributes to a real understanding of our past as we build a better Carolina and work to create a fuller perspective of Carolina’s history.
Black and Blue tour part two picks up where the Black and Blue tour ends. This tour includes the Old Chapel Hill Cemetery, the School of Government SERVICE mural, the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History, and more.
Our guide, Robert Porter, has more than 30 years of experience as a lecturer in the department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies and has won numerous teaching awards. He remains passionate about his interests in history, public history and African-American history, all of which go back to his grade-school days.
