Pathway of Resistance walking tour looks at African-American experiences in Erie Canal corridor
We are pleased to add more dates to our new Pathway of Resistance guided walking tours! During this free Erie Canal Museum program, we examine the African-American experience on and along the banks of the Erie Canal, from its beginnings to the present day. We will present this in-person program on Monday, October 12 at 1 p.m. Space is limited to protect everyone’s safety, so please register in advance at this web page.
While parts of this story are unpleasant, slavery, racism, and resistance are critical to understanding our society today. Because we believe that the issues presented in this tour are very important, the program is free of charge. We do, however, encourage a donation of $10 per person.
The Pathway of Resistance tour begins at the corner of Montgomery Street and Erie Boulevard in downtown Syracuse. This is just outside the Museum garden. All guests are required to wear face coverings for the duration of the program. Free parking spots are available in the lot across from the Museum, under routes 81 and 690.
