2022 Conference – Thursday Morning (Old Salem) Hidden Town Walking Tour
The Hidden Town Walking Tour will explore Old Salem and consider African born and derived people, free and enslaved, as founders and builders of the town. Their descendants and the post-Emancipation African American population to the present-day are part of the story as well. The tour will begin at St. Philips Moravian Church, the oldest standing African American church in North Carolina. St. Philips is a touchstone for the Black experience in Winston-Salem and celebrates its 200th anniversary this year. The two buildings we will visit are ADA accessible; however, there will be much walking uphill and on uneven sidewalks or in the street.
This tour is limited to 15 people maximum.
