The Portland Black History Tour includes 2 hours of entertaining and enlightening historical narration over a 1.5-mile route through the Old Port and East End neighborhood. Owner and guide, Dugan Murphy, dug through piles of research and historic documents to present an amazing constellation of stories left out of most tours. Meet the Black Yankees who founded Maine communities, abolished slavery statewide, ran the wharves, swung elections, led religious congregations, crossed the color line, and expanded Mainers’ rights in ways we still enjoy today.
Well over 24,000 guests have taken tours with Dugan of his hometown! Join us rain or shine from April through November.
