"Excellent diverse perspective"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Our guide was full of amazing stories about black history and the black community in Nashville. We left the tour inspired to become change agents in our community. Very encouraging tour and excellent storytelling! The tour lasted an appropriate amount of time while introducing us to lesser known black history leaders like Black Bob and the Mckissack brothers. Our tour guide was flexible and friendly. Due to the cold winter weather, we ended our tour in a historic restaurant called Woolworth on 5th. At Woolworth, we learned about Paul LaPrad, a white college student who participated in the civil rights movement and took a behind-the-scenes tour of where the sit-ins actually happened. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Nashville and anyone seeking a diverse perspective.

"Great Experience!"

This was our first time visiting Nashville in a few years. This tour offered a unique experience. You are given an up-close look at several historic sites along with informative, lively commentary. Our guide was able to answer questions that arose as well as knowledgeably share in related discussions. Since the tour is downtown, we were able to continue our own site-seeing after it’s end. We learned key information about Nashville’s history and were able to step outside-the-box of our common travel activities.

This was one of my favorite things I did in Nashville. I learned so much through Chakita's gift for storytelling and dedicated research. Make time for this tour. You'll be glad you did.
