I was born and raised in Philadelphia and I love my City. I have a formal education in history and historical research. I also went to law school. I'm naturally bubbly, friendly and approachable.

I have a guide that gives tours on The Black Journey. His name is Mijuel. He has a degree in history and political science.

This tour was great, I’d strongly recommend doing this tour before taking a traditional history tour to understand the parts of the story that most tours don’t share

This is such a great window into the experience of Black Philadelphians around the Independence maneuvering going on in the US in the 1700 and 1800’s. Raina did a great job connecting the Black experience to the reality of the times. I recommend this tour to any student of history wanting a fuller insight into America, our leaders, and the reality for African Americans. The characters change but the struggle remains the same.
