The beautiful city of Orlando has a rich African-American history and culture. Our Orlando Immersive Cultural Experience begins with pick-up at your local hotel or meeting spot in an air-conditioned passenger motorcoach or a passenger minivan for smaller groups. This 5-hour experience will leave you joyful and satisfied.
Our 1st stop will be the Bronze Kingdom:
Bronze Kingdom is the largest private collection of African art in the U.S. from over 29 countries on the continent of Africa. Countries include Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Mali, Burkina Faso and more. Learn the stories of their collection and discover your connection to the people of Africa. We will enjoy our catered meal in the company of incredible artwork.
Our experience continues to the Wells' Built Museum:
The Wells’ Built Hotel has been converted into a museum housing memorabilia of Orlando’s African-American community and displays of the Civil Rights movement along with some African art and artifacts. This historic museum was originally built by Dr. William Monroe Wells as a hotel and nearby entertainment venue for African-Americans visiting Orlando during the Segregation era. It served as host to several now-famous performers. On February 4, 2000, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
We will continue with a tour Hannibal Square:
The Hannibal Square Heritage Center was established in 2007 by Crealdé School of Art, in partnership with residents from the Hannibal Square community (west Winter Park) and the City of Winter Park. It is a tribute to the past, present, and future contributions of Winter Park’s historic African-American community. The Heritage Center hosts the award-winning Heritage Collection Photographs and Oral Histories of West Winter Park, a permanent, museum-quality exhibition of more than 100 framed, archival pieces that capture the lives of Winter Park’s African-American community spanning the 20th century, and The Hannibal Square Timeline which documents significant local and national events in African-American history since the Emancipation Proclamation
Our experience ends with a downtown walking tour of Eatonville:
Historic Town of Eatonville is the first incorporated all-black city in the nation. The historic town incorporated on August 15, 1887, naming it one of the first self-governing all-black municipalities in the United States. Eatonville has a rich history of triumph, success, tragedy and general down-home hospitality. The town hosts the 1st Vegan restaurant, DaJen Eats, a community garden and a library named after the noted Harlem Renaissance author Zora Neale Hurston who grew up in Eatonville. The Zora Neale Hurston Museum of Fine Arts is located here along with The Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts held in Eatonville annually.
