About this trip

Join us as we celebrate Juneteenth in Miami! Experience Black culture and heritage on our historian-led walking tours in Historic Overtown, Little Havana and Little Haiti for a 90-minute transformative experience that also shares the significance of Juneteenth!


What may be known to some as Black Independence Day, Jubilee Day or Emancipation Day acknowledges the day, June 19th, as the emancipation of African Americans who were enslaved.


Juneteenth is an annual observance to celebrate the date Union soldiers enforced the Emancipation Proclamation freeing all remaining slaves in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865. Texas was the last state in rebellion, following the end of the Civil War, to allow enslavement. Although the rumors of freedom were widespread prior to this, actual emancipation was not announced in the last state practicing enslavement until General Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas and issued General Order #3, on the "19th of June", almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.


Taste authentic Caribbean, southern and cuban cuisine. Experience Miami's rich Black culture through the history, food, music, dance, art and meeting locals.


Tours available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10:00am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm. Join us for all three tours and save!

Itinerary

Historic Overtown Tour
Explore Black Cultural Heritage in Historic Overtown

Become immersed in rich Black history and culture found in Historic Overtown, one of the oldest neighborhoods within the original boundaries of the City of Miami. Adjacent to downtown Miami, Overtown is bordered on the north by N.W. 21st Street, to the south by N.W. 6th Street, the east by N.W. 1st Avenue and on the west by 1-95.


Segregated by both custom and laws, it began as “Colored Town” at the turn of the 20th century. The area was assigned and limited to black workers who built and serviced the railroad, streets and hotels. The success of Miami’s pioneer tourist industry depended on the labor of black workers from the Bahamas and the Southern states. For more than 50 years, they were the primary work force in Miami.
