Priceless Gem Tour


  • THE BLACK AND BLUE TOUR (Black Caucus - OJ McGee) is a distinctive walking tour on the African-American history of the University, with emphasis on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Black and Blue tour hopes to contribute to a real understanding of our African American past as we build a better Carolina and work to create a fuller perspective on our University’s history. Our guide, Robert Porter, has over thirty years of experience as a lecturer for UNC’s department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies, winning numerous teaching awards. He remains passionate about his interests in history, public history, and African-American history, all of which go back to his grade school days.  UNC Visitors’ Center honors BLACK HISTORY MONTH with tours and photo exhibition. Tours begin at UNC Visitors’ Center, TO RESERVE A SPACE, please email mjfox@unc.edu. Please call for questions and in case of inclement weather (919) 962-1630.
