Network To Freedom Canadian Black History Tour
On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, a Black History Tour of Niagara Canada is being offered. The rich history in Niagara covers not just the Underground Railroad but other period of history as well. Your guide is a descendant of a Freedom Seeker that came to Canada from Kentucky in 1851. As well as the history, she will also share her personal stories having grown up in Niagara Canada.
The tour schedule is as follows:
9:00 a.m. Leave the Hyatt Place Niagara Falls Hotel to travel through customs into Canada (PASSPORTS OR ENHANCED DRIVERS LICENSES ARE REQUIRED) to meet your guide in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

• the site of the Niagara Movement meeting
• landing site of Freedom Seekers such as Josiah Henson of Uncle Tom’s Cabin book fame
• the church of Harriet Tubman and much more.
Should time permit, we will drive through the pretty town of Niagara on the Lake on our way back to the bridge.
5:00 p.m. Return to the Hyatt Place Niagara Falls Hotel
The cost for the tour is $75.00 U.S. The cost includes transportation, the guide, a bagged lunch, admission to the church, gratuities and taxes.
