• Beach Institute built in 1867 by the Freedmen’s Bureau, now an African-American Cultural Center
• Laurel Grove Cemetery South – in 1853, fifteen acres of the original cemetery were set aside for the burial of ‘free persons of color and slaves’
• Ralph Gilbert Marks ‘Civil Rights Museum’
• First African Baptist Church – take a few steps along the Underground Railroad in the oldest black Christian congregation in America
• Haitian Monument on Franklin Square

SECRET MAP AND INSIDE INFORMATION:
Lunch would not be quite the same if we did not point your way to some of the wondrously delicious Soul Food on which reputations have been built and food critics won over. Our top secret list will be handed over as you begin your journey wrapped in a neck handkerchief – the sort worn by working tradesmen and laboring slaves. Feel free to dab your brow with it as you labor over the heaping lunch plates of favorite hidden-away soul-nourishing restaurants.
There is much to learn, so many places to explore, and so little time but we believe we have packaged the best of the best, the amuse bouche to the meal of Savannah’s Black History and the Civil Rights Movement. Join the thousands of visitors from around the world who have embraced the story of Savannah’s black history, culture and heritage.
