Celebrating Savannah's Gullah Geechee Communities' Journey From Slavery to Freedom

Welcome to Savannah! Savannah is the second port of entry for slaves in the United States. Come hear, see, and feel the history of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade! Commemorate their cries, hear the freedom songs and prayers. Share the story of the city's history and gain insight from our tour guides as they weave the history, stories and narrative reenactments together to showcase the journey of enslaved Africans who were captured and served as urban and plantation slaves in Savannah, GA.

Come walk with us as we show you the offices where slaves were purchased, auction blocks in historic squares, the building of First African Baptist Church as an underground railroad site. Experience on-site re-enactments of the voices of Slaves from the Federal Writers Project on Georgia plantations. 'Jine' us as we celebrate and pay homage at the monuments dedicated to the courage of our ancestors who toiled from sunrise to sunset. You may weep during this guided tour, but you can also experience the celebration of the victories of the African-American journey from slavery to freedom through our tour stories, slave reenactments, songs, tambourines, and a few Gullah Geechee ring shouts too! A must see 'Homage!'
