“Let Freedom Ring: Resistance, Abolition and Civil Rights”

Sankofa Tour Guide: Nur Shoop

Colonial Portsmouth newspapers testify to local the slave trade, runaways, abolitionists and anti-abolitionist activities, followed by conflicting opinions of the Civil War. In the 20th century, the legacy of that early history was reflected in news about de facto segregation in housing and public places. This tour includes many of those historic landmarks.
