Elizabeth Keckley Walking Tour in DC
Nineteenth-century sistah seamstress and quilter Elizabeth Keckley (sometimes Keckly) is hosting a 90 minute, 1.5 mile walking tour in Washington, DC - starting at the Ford's Theatre. Mrs. Keckley, played by actress Danielle A. Drake, "tells the story of her friendship with the Lincoln family and of her efforts to help former slaves find their way in the newly free city of Washington." Enjoy!
