Historian Vaughnette Goode-Walker takes you back in time to explore economic development of antebellum Savannah, Georgia through the history of urban slavery, the slave trade and the cotton trade, leading up to the Civil War.

Each virtual tour, via Zoom, is a live, interactive learning experience for the audience, a limited number of guests, conducted through questions and conversations with the host, throughout the Tour. You will learn about the intersection of Goode-Walker’s personal family history with events that transpired, as you visit places where these events took place and/or monuments that bear witness. Her notable tour was recently featured on MSNBC by Ali Velshi.
