Learn about the myth of the black Statue of Liberty, and see the contemporary sculpture that commemorates the abolition of slavery in the French colonies.
The tour, led by a knowledgeable and experienced local guide, involves about 2 hours of walking. Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden is a regularly-scheduled walking tour.
