Guided walks around town with Gullah Tours provide an overview of the city’s African-American history, from slavery to the present day. Morning walking tours focus on sites associated with the city’s African-American heritage: the Old Slave Mart, the sweetgrass stalls at the Charleston City Market, and the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. You’ll also see works by Philip Simmons, an acclaimed blacksmith who died in 2009 and whose ornamental gates and balconies grace many of Charleston’s homes.
