Take the Freedom Trails African-American Patri¬ots Tour and the name of patriot Crispus Attucks will become as familiar as that other Patriot, Tom Brady. On the 90-minute walk, costumed guides discuss the contributions that black Bostonians like Attucks, poet Phyllis Wheatley, and others made to the American Revolu¬tion. Reserve a tour spot by telephone.
