Boss Of The Grips Trolley Tour with Author Eric K. Washington
 Registration is closed for this event

Join author and historian, Eric K. Washington, on this unique trolley tour exploring the life of James H. Williams.

Williams was the supervisor of the almost all-black staff of "Red Cap" railroad porters who carried bags and chaperoned passengers at Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal from 1909 to 1948.

Williams story is one of success as he fought to win authority and influence in a segregated economy.

Aboard the Woodlawn Trolley, celebrate the life of Williams and other notables who fought for civil rights in America. 

We anticipate these tours will sell out quickly.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity and reserve your spot today! 

Meet at the Jerome Avenue and Bainbridge Avenue entrance at 2:45 PM. 

Tour is rain or shine.  Ticket sales are final.  Refunds will not be issued.

We are located directly across the street from the Woodlawn stop on the #4 subway.

Free parking available in Woodlawn Cemetery.

We look forward to hosting you on this brand new tour.
