We will visit six of Savannah's most historic and beautiful squares as you learn about the epic journey of slavery to freedom for Savannah's African-American community; a story that culminates with a historic meeting on January 12, 1865 between local black church leaders and U.S. government officials to plan for the future of 4 million African-Americans standing on the threshold of emancipation.

Each of the six squares we will be visiting--Franklin Square, Ellis Square, Johnson Square, Wright Square, Chippewa Square and Madison Square--contributes a unique chapter of the competing two forces--the elevation of slavery vs. freedom through faith--that drove the narrative of Savannah from its founding to the end of the Civil War.
If 10 AM doesn't work for you, we can do a private tour at your convenience.
