January 16, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

We explore the history of African American trailblazers in San Antonio with a safe, socially distanced, outdoor walking tour of Eastview Cemetery. A few of the historic figures uncovered include Samuel Sutton, Oliver Sutton, Myra Hemmings, Hattie Briscoe, Claude Black Sr., Charles Bellinger to name a few. Discussions will also include the history of the previously enslaved people buried at the cemetery. We will also learn about the cemetery’s historic evolution.

This epic tour celebrates the lives of local African American historic icons and the difference they made in our community. Join us!
