African American Life at Princeton Is First in Series of Historical Walking Tours

A new walking tour offers the opportunity to learn about the personal experiences of African Americans who lived, worked and studied at Princeton. “Stories of African American Life at Princeton” is the first of an eventual series of historical walking tours of campus.

The series “Making Visible What Has Been Invisible” will illuminate lesser-known histories of the University in order to tell a more complete narrative of Princeton’s past.

The African American history tour is web-based and mobile friendly. Viewers don’t need to be on campus to experience the tour, which is best viewed using Firefox or Google Chrome browsers. The tour is in a soft-launch phase and viewers are encouraged to submit their feedback to help improve the tour experience.
