Our experience bridges important time periods together. We begin at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the premier center of its kind in the world. We'll explore how Africans, forced to leave their homeland, came to both the Caribbean and the Americas through slavery. You will understand how they impacted food, music, popular culture and dance with exhibits, film or sound.

Their struggle made Harlem a center for social movements from the mid 1880s to the present.

We touch on the Trans Atlantic Slave trade, its impact on human relations between American-born citizens and immigrants at that time. We'll delve into the New Negro Movement, which sparked the modern civil rights movement in this country and explore depression-era exhibitions such as the recently restored WPA murals in Harlem Hospital. Together, we’ll discover how we can learn how to heal from the past to move towards a better future.

If you know that you will be in town for several days, book early so I can assist with an itinerary that can include a lindyhop or tap dance class and /or food tasting.

Feel free to bring your own camera to take pictures and dress appropriately for the weather.

Savona is an expert story teller. We enjoyed this tour so much! She has curated a full fascinating in depth story that is thoughtful, empathetic, wholistic and so well researched. She has been our best tour guide to date. We were so so glad to have her guide us through Harlem and it’s history. We also got homemade muffins which kept our tummies full! Recommend without any hesitation!

Savona is a learned scholar and brilliant storyteller. She is also funny as heck and loves to keep learning. Her work helps us unlearn many false narratives that we've been told in terms of American history.

I highly recommend a tour with Savona. She is passionate as she shares the history of Harlem. As we went through the exhibit on abolition, seeing, reading, and listening to the history behind the books written for children moved this elementary teacher and mom's heart. We learned so much more in 2 hours than what we had learned prior...and we are people who have intentionally tried to learn truths that are absent from history books. She was also amazing with our shy 8-year-old. I truly can't recommend this tour highly enough.

My meeting with Savona was a rich and deeply satisfying dive into the history of the black diaspora. Her profound knowledge and perspective enlarged my understanding of the black experience not only here but also in the Caribbean. The time flew by and when our time was up I left with a real sense of why I booked this experience: connections. She did this for me. I highly recommend booking this experience .
