20th Annual QCT Charlotte Pilgrimage Tour!

All tours depart from the 7th Street Public Market at 224 E. 7th St. in Uptown/Downtown/Center City Charlotte, NC.


 In 1998 the Interfaith Pilgrimage made its way into Charlotte. The group consisted of the young and the old from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. They were recreating the "Middle Passage" Slave trade routes from Europe, Africa, South America and the United States. Their goal was to locate sites that were part of the Slave trade and to pray for racial healing and atonement for the past institution of Slavery in the United States.

Each One Teach One!

 Each year since then we have recreated this 3-hour tour  and invited the public to attend. Over the years, with help from the  media, we have inspired many of the caretakers in charge of these sites  to clean up and recognize the contributions of those Slaves with honor and dignity.
