Pathway of Resistance


The Pathway of Resistance walking tour examines the African-American experience on and along the banks of the Erie Canal, from the waterway's beginnings to contemporary times. We will present this in-person program on alternating Thursdays and Saturdays at 1 p.m. starting on June 9th. While the legacies of slavery and systemic racism can be uncomfortable to discuss, it is crucial for these issues to be addressed and to understand how these legacies continue to impact our society today. Because we believe that the issues presented in this tour are very important, the program is free of charge. We do, however, encourage a donation of $10 per person. Space is limited, so please try to reserve space in advance by registering on our Shop page, calling the Museum at (315) 471-0593, or emailing educator@eriecanalmuseum.org. Walk-ins welcome as well. The tour begins just outside the Museum garden. Free parking is available in the lot across from the Museum, under routes 81 and 690. We hope you'll join us!
