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’!
