A Valuable, Necessary Perspective

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from both Chakita and Ogden. They were a delightful and powerful tag team of wisdom and true history. We did a full day tour with them tailored to us so the time spent in advance of our tour chatting with us and planning was so valuable too. We strongly recommend booking with them and learning true history of Nashville and the civil rights movement.


Amazing walk through Nashville History

I’m appreciative of Chakita and her African American History tour! I learned so much about the journey of AfAm in Nashville from the time the first settlers came to the area through the civil rights movement. Thank you so much for being so personable and bringing such an infectious energy to the tour!! I really enjoyed myself.
