slideshow5 Today on 30 Minutes, scholar and story teller Dr. Michael Engs tells little known stories about African Latinas in colonial Arizona. He is co-owner of Arizona Heritage Tours. He is also a volunteer with the Tucson Presidio Trust. He strives to bring the history of Black people and their extensive contributions to the settlement of the southwest to a broader audience.

The mission of Arizona Heritage Tours LLC is to bring to light the lesser known contributions of African/Latino Americans in the Southwest region from 1538-1916. This intent is actualized through the presentation of “living history  lectures” by the renowned scholar Dr. Michael S. Engs with assistance from a talented variety of role playing actors; visual image slide shows of noteworthy African/Latino American figures that have thrived in the Southwest; and tours of various Arizonan historical sites.
