What our customers say about our tour of the British Museum:
"I want more! I have read books on African history and attended classes. Its good to be able to have someone explain the artifacts and how they all tie up."
"My Black History knowledge has been enriched and built upon. I have seen with my own eyes the amazing works of my African descendents which has increased my confidence in myself as a black woman with much talent and richness to offer."
"I went on the tour not really knowing what to expect. I was pleasently surprised with the information available. The tour was educational, touching on controversial issues and definately supplemented knowledge already gained from own research and Black History Studies seminars."
"As someone who's desire is to empower our youth with the truth, it is important that we do this with a desire to enrich the lives of our youths and others also."
International Slavery Museum
What our customers say about our tour of the International Slavery Museum:
"Having Black History Studies explain things on the tour made it very interesting in comparison to just having a look on your own"
"A very informative and engaging day. This tour was set within a very relaxed and friendly manner which made it very accessible. Black History Studies was fantastic and very thorough in their delivery"
"The tour was informative and has added a more 'visual' tier, with expert narration from Black History Studies which increased my knowledge on 'our' story of Africa, Africans and Africans in the diaspora"
"The tour reinforced all that I was taught on the Transatlantic Enslavement course and the constant uprisings that took place that I was never told in standard slavery lessons in school."
