This is our second summer season in the Seaport District. Having a studio to welcome elementary school students, professors, locals, and tourists, has helped us spark a critical mass of conversations about the hidden impact of the African Diaspora on New York City. We appreciate the new faces that have joined our walking tours and our Nerdy Thursdays, bringing intelligence and a sense of humor. It is certainly a joy to maintain contact with people through the years – individuals, organizations, and businesses. It’s amazing to think that this vision started a decade ago with a question from a child that has created a dialogue that is taking place around the world.

 

Our walking tours continue to create new understanding and has been the backbone to our learning and programming. Below is our list of walking tours and other special programs that create our summer 2018 season.

 

On behalf of the BGX Team, I want to thank you for your continued support. Every person that nerds out with us on Nerdy Thursdays or asks the next big question on our walking tours makes the world more understandable and our humanity more vibrant. An extra special shoutout goes to The Howard Hughes Corporation and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council for believing in us since 2016 and giving us a place to call home.

 

Stay healthy and brilliant. See you in the streets.
