Explore Durham's African American history. Custom group tours available for birthdays, family reunions, professional retreats, and class field trips.
Whistle Stop Tours strives to be a contributing voice in shaping the public memory of North Carolina's slave past and African American achievement. New transplants to the area often do not know the neighborhoods' history; with homes being renovated or simply torn down, the public history of African Americans is incomplete. In a time of mass displacement, food deserts, and state-sanctioned killings of Black people, it is important that the band of Black men and women coming out of slavery — the forefathers and foremothers of Durham's Hayti and Black Wall Street — be celebrated, elevated, and emulated.
