African American History Forum
A tour to Black Italy 2010
I know this is a very early request, but it's going to take this amount of time to research, get info of interest together and give those in my family and possibly friends time to pay for a trip of this sort. For many, many years I wanted to go to France. Finally got to do it, but it wasn't as enjoyalbe as I hoped. Things happen on tours, but they can be planned for and avoided before you leave your home of record. But you make the best of it. Back to my request, In Paris the Spirit Walk tour, guided by Elay Mays who has lived in the city for 15 years,the company he works with was showcased in the Ebony Magazine this past summer. He is a black American Artist. He did an excellant job. Problems we had was not of his making. What I would like is to find a company in Italy, that is informative about our Afro Amercan History to escort maximum of 16 people on an escorted, hop on Hop Off bus tour while in Italy. Can anyone recommend anyone. Of course we will want to see all of the other famous monuments, but we would also want to include black owned and operated restaurants, shops, shows, etc. I am not homing in on starting from one state, because people would be coming from any state, but mainly this is for people living in the midwest starting point. I have no idea of cost, but time wise, 8 days and 16 people would be the maximum. Please, I will need complete name, number address/email for this company so we can check them out. We want to see 'Black folks Beginnings in Italy".
