“Ride with the King: Black History Tour”
Doors Open Pittsburgh celebrates MLK Day early – on Jan. 19 – with its “Ride with the King: Black History Tour.” Choose from a bus tour or self-guided tour. Kids will hear stories about Pittsburgh’s African-American history dating from the 1800s to the present. Leaders in the city’s African-American church community will be the guides at St. James African Church in East Liberty, Bethel AME Church in Uptown and Brown Chapel AME Church on the North Side.
Other tour locations include the August Wilson Center to view “Familiar Boundaries. Infinite Possibilities,” an exhibition featuring the works of 12 contemporary artists, and the Dollar Bank Heritage Center in the Dollar Bank Fourth Avenue building, where the bus tour will begin. Light refreshments will be served in one of the churches. Reservations required.
