Black & Blue Tour with Robert Porter - This distinctive walking tour provides an African-American history of the University, with emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. The Black and Blue tour contributes to a real understanding of our past as we build a better Carolina and work to create a fuller perspective of Carolina’s history. Our guide, Robert Porter, has more than 30 years of experience as a lecturer in the department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies and has won 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. The Black and Blue tours will depart from the UNC Visitors Center lobby.
