What was The Weeping Time? Who first used the term "African-American"? Find the answers to those questions and a lot more on this 2.5-hour riding tour, while watching an accompanying DVD on our flat screens. Discover why Savannah was so instrumental in creating a fascinating historical record of black history in the United States. Learn all kinds of interesting facts and get a glimpse into the lives of famous and influential past and present Savannahians, but also spend time visiting the remarkable First African Baptist Church and the Beach Institute Museum.
