O que você fará
Historic Overtown is located right next to downtown Miami so an Uber or Lyft can easily get you to our meet-up location in front of Jackson Soul Food. I'll guide you on six (6) block walking tour while sharing the history of Historic Overtown, once known as Colored Town and the Harlem of the South. I'll point out and take you inside of historic buildings where black celebrities & VIPs such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cab Calloway, Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, James Brown, Muhammad Ali, Dana Dorsey and many others once partied and slept while visiting Miami. While these notable African Americans could perform on South Beach, they could not sleep in the hotels so they retreated to Overtown where whites followed them and the partied continued. I'll take you inside the home of Dana Dorsey, one of the 1st Black millionaires in Florida who once owned most of the land in Miami including Fischer Island. Also, I'll show you the building where Cassius Clay changed his name to Muhammad Ali as well as highlight some of the new developments of Overtown as the area undergoes gentrification. After an hour stroll through the neighborhood, we'll have the best soul food meal you're ever tasted at a local restaurant that serves the best macaroni & cheese, collard greens, smoked BBQ wings, BBQ rip tips, shrimp & grits, chicken & waffles & more! Vegetarian options are available!
