    Community Bus Tour & Shoebox Picnic

    This bus tour connects the dots between the lives of the Black and white founders of Austin, including the Wheatville and Clarksville Freedman communities, Governor Pease’s mansion, the Texas Governor’s Mansion, and the Neill-Cochran House Museum. Attendees will enjoy a traveler’s shoebox feast, reminiscent of the scrumptious meals packed for Black travelers by their families and communities during the Jim Crow Era when Black people were denied service at restaurants. The event includes a live performance by Jennifer Cumberbatch and entrance to the "If These Walls Could Talk" exhibit.
    Sat., Feb. 29, 10:30am & 1:30pm. $40.
