The idea of a Charlotte Woman's History and Heritage Tour™ came to our Director Juan a.k.a. "Jay" Whipple way back in 2002 -- nine years after he developed his first area tour of Black Charlotte called the QCT Charlotte Black/African-American Heritage Tour™.
He commissioned one of his female guides to begin the research; however, the project was never completed due to an unforeseen stoppage.
The idea of the Charlotte Woman's History and Heritage Tour™ was shelved until 2008 when Mr. Whipple decided to dust off and complete the project himself.
"The timing is a lot better for this type of tour because women have made a much larger impact on the Queen City since 2002" says Whipple. "Back then there were just a hand full of women contributors to highlight, today, you have a much larger pool of notable women to highlight which allows for at least a three hour tour."
Charlotte's first Women's History and Heritage Tour™ highlighted the contributions of notable area women from the past and present such as Doris Duke (Duke Energy), Dr. Selma Burke (Sculptress), Liz Hair (Former County Commission Chair), Representative Beverly Earle (D-NC 101), Representative Sue Myrick (R-NC 9), and Ms. Cynthia Marshall (AT&T NC), to name a few.
The first Annual QCT Charlotte Women's History and Heritage Tour™ commenced on Saturday March 27, 2010, at 1:30 PM, and included a memorable stop at the Duke Mansion. The tour lasted three hours.
