Event description
Explore Philadelphia's historic Green Book sites that once helped African Americans travel safely during Jim Crow.

About this Event

Philadelphia is home to a number of notable Green Book sites. These places hosted African American travelers, including famous jazz musicians and other important historic figures, during the Jim Crow era.

Join PlanPhilly and Faye Anderson from All That Philly Jazz for a walking tour of the sites. Through the walk, learn about the city's hidden history and explore cultural preservation in a city that is constantly changing.

Questions? Email PlanPhilly’s Engagement Editor, Elizabeth Estrada, at eestrada@whyy.org.

*Note: The walking tour begins at the Bellevue Philadelphia (formerly Bellevue-Stratford Hotel) and ends at the repurposed Attucks Hotel (distance: 0.7 miles). There will be approximately 10 stops in between. Please dress comfortably and prepare for 90+ minutes of walking. The walking tour will be held rain or shine.

**This tour can only accommodate 25 people. Once it sells out, we are not able to add more tickets. Thank you for understanding.
