The Freedmen’s Town Bike Tour is a tour designed to tell the often unknown story of the 1st African American community in Houston immediately after Africans were notified that they were FREE two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. On this approximately seven mile tour riders will ride along the original boundary of Freedmen’s Town (much of which has been taken by sometimes eminent domain and other times gentrification), visit historic churches & homes, the historic brick streets as well as other key sites within the community. Riders will also get to participate in an actual Yoruba libation which was an actual tradition of the freedmen. Ase’! We will begin gathering at 2:30pm at the parking garage at 1501 Taft. Tour will begin at 3pm.After the tour it is our tradition to fellowship and patronize one of three black owned businesses all of which are located at: 920 Studemont, 77007*
