Local Community Tours
Freedom Lifted proudly supports local communities who document their history by developing their own people’s history tours. We also work with HistoryPin and the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership at Kalamazoo College to help people digitize the tours they have developed in their communities. If you have a tour you would like for us to feature here or if you would like for us to help you put your tour online, please contact us.
