Frank does a wonderful in depth tour about the real Charleston. The city has a rich albeit sad and painful history. The contributions of the enslaved African American community cannot be forgotten and should be told to all who visit Charleston. History needs to be righted!

Awesome tour if you want to learn about real black history in Historic Charleston SC. We learned about the real stuff that they don’t teach us in text books! Highly recommended if you want to know the “other side” of Charleston!
