Several weeks ago a busload of mostly mature, black ladies from cities all over the USA joined me in a Black Historic Tour of Philadelphia. What we expected (the usual city tour, with touch of black history) was NOT what we got!! We sat mesmerized for over three hours while Ms. Palmore-Lewis escorted us from site to site providing the most unbelievable (and hereto unknown) details/facts of each site.
She went far beyond the "this is" or "who slept here". She provided the background of the "this is" site and frequently exlained why the person slept there (and sometimes with whom) as well as other interesting details. We traveled from one end of the city to the other and all points in between. Ms. Palmore-Lewis never stopped providing interesting details, most of which we had never heard before.
The tour was an enjoyable history lesson about Philadelphia! It was an unbelievably refreshing take on what we expected would be the usual city tour, from a Black tour guide!
