Historic Columbia Foundation and One Columbia present an African-American sites bus tour, covering home places, work places and resting places. Since its creation in 1786, Columbia has featured a large African-American population whose labor, skills and vision have been integral in the city’s physical, spiritual and social evolution. During the course of four centuries the city’s black community transformed itself from that of a predominately enslaved population to a society whose members overcame the restrictions of Jim Crow and charted the course of the Civil Rights era. The story of this journey remains today within the home places, work places and resting places of Columbia’s African-American community. Tour meets at Greek Orthodox Church, 1931 Sumter Street.
