'Black Amsterdam Tour'
Uncovering the hidden Black History in the Netherlands  
    Wednesday 29th June 2016 - Saturday 2nd July 2016  
Explore the rich Black History of Amsterdam with like-minded people

This new and exciting 4 day tour explores the rich heritage of Africans in the Netherlands and their connection to Suriname in South America. With overnight accommodation included and an expert guide to accompany you, the tour highlights the contributions of the African Diaspora to Dutch society from the 16th century to the present, visiting several historically and culturally significant landmarks in Amsterdam. The tour starts in the heart of Amsterdam at the National Monument near the Dam Square. Seeing the city from the canals is the best way to get acquainted with this historic place.  While exploring the African legacies of the past and contemporary Dutch culture, we will pass several historically and culturally significant landmarks that include the West India House, Anton de Kom's House, the Anne Frank House, the Hermitage Museum and more.
Discover the history of the most famous city of the Netherlands, including how 17th-century Amsterdam became the wealthiest city in the world, with Dutch merchants scattered across the globe. The Netherlands abolished slavery on 1 July 1863 and used to be one of the important trading nations in enslaved Africans before that time. Much of the riches of Amsterdam of the Golden Age derives from trading of enslaved Africans and the trading of goods from the plantations.  

1 July 1863 marked the abolition from slavery for Suriname and the Antilles. However, 'abolition' in 1863, did not equate to full 'emancipation' for the enslaved as they were forced to work another 10 years before they would be able to experience 'freedom'
Nowhere is that more celebrated than in Amsterdam, home to a thriving Surinamese community and host of the Keti Koti Festival. Come celebrate and commemorate this rich culture and its people with us on this tour through food, music, dance, Caribbean market, art exhibitions and ceremony.

There will also be plenty of free time to explore and make your own discoveries.
