Juneteenth Walking Tour - Outdoor Adventure Center

June 15 2023 | 6:00pm to 8:00pm

During the early 19th century through 1865, Detroit was an integral part of the network known as the Underground Railroad. Given the code word “Midnight,” our city was the last stop for many freedom seekers as they sought passage to Canada. However, the Underground Railroad was only the first of many acts of civil disobedience our city has witnessed.

Detroiters have played a large role in the movement for Civil Rights, and today our city continues to be home to many change-makers creating a brighter future. Join OAC educators, Kimmie Dobos Wolfe of the Detroit Historical Society and Jamon Jordan of the Black Scroll Network History & Tours for a historical walking tour of the Detroit riverfront and surrounding areas. This walk will begin and end at the Outdoor Adventure Center. This program is recommended for participants 10 and older.
