Heritage Empowered believes an educated populace is vital to the ongoing success of the republic, its people, and the communities they create. We encourage children, youth, college students, parents, and grandparents to participate in all of our tours. This enables all to be well-informed citizens prepared to participate in the current discussions and debates. Participants will also gain a better understanding of the historical significance of the black experience in America and how it shaped our country. We have proven over the last decade the transformative effect such knowledge has on the thinking and actions of those who participate. "
