  • The lady who did my tour was amazing informative and extremely knowledgeable. Overwhelming emotions ran thru me but I left educated enlightened and I would suggest anyone who is the area to stop there take the tour open your eyes and your heart and have tissues on hand. If I ever go to Memphis again I will go back here. I didn't take photos out of respect. Next time I will ask if it's allowed.
  • This is a house, that at one time was on the slave underground. It's a small house, but the tour is guided. The guide did a superb job of telling that story of the house and painted a picture of the slave trade in general. Worth going to if you are interested in the slave condition and history. Cost was $12 per adult.
  • GO!! RIGHT NOW!! BRING YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY AND ALL YOUR FRIENDS...ESP YOUR CHILDREN. Hidden gem in Memphis...off the tourist track...that is FULL of one of a kind info. A completely visceral experience that should NOT be missed by any African Person. All kinds of incredible.
  • Wonderful! So glad we went. Very informative and the tour lady is excellent with her presentation and information. Encourage all to tour when in the area. Educational.
  • Go right now!! This place should be visited by ALL Black people AND ALL persons of color while living in or visiting Memphis. A true one of a kind visceral experience that celebrates OUR strength and fortitude. Do not miss it!!
