This special tour includes a stop at Stenton and will trace the life of Dinah (c.1720-1805), who was enslaved, reunited her family, and gained her freedom. Participants will visit the newly created Dinah Memorial and tour the c.1730 house museum, exploring the histories of Dinah, her family, and the community of enslaved and freed individuals who lived and labored at Stenton. 

Additionally guests will tour The Colored Girls Museum with particular focus on the new exhibit "The Intermission". This latest offering is a workshop production that invites our audience to join in the adventure. Here, a 140-year-old house serves as our protagonist. A colored girl's museum, accompanied by a widow and an ordinary colored girl, navigates intersecting and alternate realities, all in a quest to find their way back home or to each other.
