    Guests will learn more about Astoria’s earliest Black residents, businesses, and moments, and local filmmaker Ron Craig will make a special appearance to discuss York of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. BONUS: Your tour ticket includes admission to the Heritage Museum, including their exhibit Blocked Out: Race and Place in the Making of Modern Astoria.
