Walk the same streets where enslaved Africans once worked and played, where free blacks owned and operated businesses, where Naval Academy attendants mentored each new class of young recruits, and where politics and laws have shaped the lives and destinies of African Americans for over four centuries. This award-winning tour, produced by Watermark in partnership with the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation, has become a popular “must-do” experience for families, students, heritage visitors, reunion groups, and Naval Academy guests.
Annapolis Tours by Watermark
Debbie Gosselin, Watermark’s President said, “We know that residents and visitors alike will want to explore Annapolis’s roots and beautiful streets. We have customized a special offering to showcase the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Memorial in a delightful up-close-and-personal view of Annapolis. A portion of the proceeds goes to support the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation.”
This charming tour features the rich history of African-Americans in Annapolis and their impact nationally and internationally. Key historical sites, including the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Memorial and the State House, will be part of this journey. The tour ends in front of the State’s official museum on African American History and Culture, Banneker- Douglass Museum. Says Judith Cabral of the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Foundation, “We hope all visitors coming to the region schedule some time to visit Annapolis and take the tour. One million people a year from all over the world visit the Kunta Kinte-Alex Haley Memorial. It would be a shame for anyone to miss it — we are only 40 minutes from DC, or 40 minutes from the Thurgood Marshall Baltimore-Washington International Airport. ”
