Översikt

Maine's Black community är litet, men dess historia här går tillbaka mer än 400 år. På denna guidade rundtur kommer du att dyka djupt in i Portlands svarta historia och upptäcka hur denna gemenskap – nationella ledare, arbetare, kvalificerade arbetare, aktivister och mer – kämpade för frihet och jämlikhet och definierade statens väg. Från Frederick Douglass till mindre kända Black Yankees, det finns mycket mer här än vad man kan se, och med denna turné kommer du att lära dig allt om det.

Great Black History Tour
Natalie_W, aug. 2023
The tour is weaved through the streets of Portland and thanks to the In-depth research which the tour guide has done, it brings history to life through landmarks and visuals!

It's important to me to carry visuals with me on all my tours. The figures on the Black History Tour played important roles in American history and I like sharing their stories with guests. Thank you for choosing Portland by the Foot and for writing a review!
Loved this tour!
Jessica_S, juli 2023
We loved this tour! What a lovely way to get to know a city! Dugan was so knowledgeable and did an amazing job sharing the history of some of Portland’s civil rights advocates and icons. I loved how much context he provided about Portland through the years and how much he knew about the different historical figures he introduced us to. Thank you Dugan for sharing this important history in such an engaging way!

I'm honored. I love guiding people through my hometown and I feel that this city's underrepresented Black history is especially important. I appreciate you choosing this tour and for writing such a nice review. Thank you!
Maine’s Remarkable Black History
Lela_B, juni 2023
The Portland Maine Black History Walking tour was an incredibly informative, illuminating an uplifting experience! Our tour guide Dugan dazzled and enthralled us with a seemingly endless array of historical facts, figures and anecdotal insights on African slaves and their descendants who were able to achieve distinction in a society that largely treated them as sub-human. We learned of the significant role Maine in general, and Portland in particular, played in the Underground Railroad and the Abolitionist Movement. Dugan identified several African-Americans in Maine’s early history who distinguished themselves as sailors, longshoremen, lawyers, railroad workers, entrepreneurs and clergymen, despite the ubiquitous presence of racial oppression and discrimination. All and all, Dugan conducted an excellent tour. His meticulous and nuanced command of Portland Maine’s contribution to black history was certainly impressive! One cautionary note: this tour involves a lot of walking, sometimes over brick and cobblestone sidewalks, and Dugan moves at a fairly brisk pace!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review! I'm honored to be able to share this remarkable history with visitors. I do get pretty excited about each tour stop, which means I'm right out in front of the group. I do also make sure to wait at each stop for everyone to arrive before I say anything important about it. I hope to meet you again on another tour in the future!
Great tour.

Dugan was an excellent tour guide. He answered everyone’s questions with enthusiasm and charm. He was witty and knowledgeable. We had a great time. The tour and information are so interesting you don’t even realize you’ve been walking for 2 hours.

The stories from Portland's historic Black community are already incredible and inspiring. My goal is to do those stories justice when I share them with guests. Thank you for joining us and for the review!
Excellent Portland Black History Tour!!!
Anja_P, juni 2022
The tour was excellent. I particularly enjoyed learning about the profound contribution to Portland’s history made by so many black American men and women. The First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church and the Abyssinian Meeting Hall we’re particularly spectacular visits during the tour. The tour guide Dugan exhibited a wealth of information and gave great presentations including many pictures of key persons in Portland’s history.

Fascinating Information
Kimberly_C, apr. 2022
This was an absolutely wonderful tour. I learned so much about The Black history of Portland, information that has been forgotten, ignored, or suppressed. My eyes were definitely opened. Dugan was wonderful. I was deeply impressed by his knowledge, his passion, and his research skills. I recommend this tour to anyone who visits Portland and to locals as well.
