“Freedom’s Fight in Alexandria” – This 90-minute guided walking tour through the streets of Old Town will give participants insight into Alexandria's pre-civil war history of urban slavery, and highlight runaway enslaved people, like Oscar and George Ball, and abolitionists, such as pharmacist Edward Stabler, who pushed back against the "Peculiar Institution" of slavery. This tour is part of the Yale Club of Washington, DC’s event series marking African American History Month.

Manumission Tour Company curates guided cultural heritage tours designed to highlight Alexandria’s extensive African American History. Founded by a fourth generation Alexandrian, this company offers weekend guided walking tours and this tour is being organized as a private tour for Yale Club of Washington DC community. www.manumissiontours.com
