      Freedom Black History Bus Tour IV- San Antonio, TX (10am)

      Join us Saturday June 29, 2019 - 10am  for an amazing bus tour of some of San Antonio's most historic African-American landmarks and locations! This experience is being brought to you by Melaneyes Media, the producers of "Walk on the River: A Black History of the Alamo City," Learn more about the film HERE http://walkontheriver.com/ We will load passengers at the MLK Academy @ 9:30am and will be prepared to hit the road by 10am sharp. From MLK Academy, we will take a ride to visit a host of monumental sites including: The Carver Cultural Community Center (formerly the Colored Branch Library) Phyllis Wheatley High School Ellis Alley The Ella Austin Orphanage ... and more As we tour the city, we will explain the history and cultural significance of the places we visit. This Freedom Bus Tour is a result of the information and history revealed in the documentary film "Walk on the River."and was organized at the request of many of our supporters. As the city grows and changes, as the “Eastside” (historically considered the Black side of town) becomes more gentrified, as historical locations and landmarks are being demolished or forgotten- we are doing our best to help preserve our own history and tell our own story. The tour will take place on a modern 56 passenger charter bus which includes the following amenities: Unobstructed View of Scenery Tinted Windows Controlled Climate System Reclining Seats and Footrest Individual Seat Lighting On-Board Restroom Facilities Overhead Storage for Carry-On Items PA System TV Monitors Wireless Internet  110 Electrical Outlets  The Freedom Black History Bus Tour will take place twice on Saturday June 29, visiting the same locations: The first at 10am The second at 1pm (a different event: TICKETS HERE http://bit.ly/FBTour1pm) Tickets for this event need to be purchased in advance online, we will NOT be able to accept money or sell tickets in person the day of the tour. • General Admission Tickets: $18 • VIP Tickets: $30 ( Includes DVD copy of Walk on the River- A Black History of the Alamo City) **Please make sure that you can attend before you purchase tickets, there will be NO REFUNDS. **For questions and sponsorship opportunities, please contact: Email: melaneyes3@gmail.com Call: Logic Allah (210) 560-1733 Thank you for your support!
