May Walking Tour
Savannah's History of Persecution

On Tuesday 23rd and Tuesday 30th of May 2017, Massie will introduce the History of Persecution Walking tour for the first time! Participants will be guided through the streets of historic Savannah, GA and learn about communities that fled oppression in other parts of the world only to find a sanctuary in Savannah. They will also discover the hidden histories of communities that suffered mistreatment and discrimination in Savannah GA and her outlying areas due to enslavement, exploitation and extreme poverty.

Join us to learn more about the history of the Native Americans, the Sephardic Jewish Community, the French, the Georgia Salzburgers, the Irish and the African Americans and how they struggled and endeavored, making Savannah the diverse melting pot that it is today.

Time and Location: The two hour tour begins at Massie at 5 pm and ends on Bay Street at 7 pm.
Cost: $15 per person
Registration: Click here to book your tour, call our office at 912 395-5070. or go to historyofpersecution.eventbrite.com.
