Jazz vocalist Billie Holiday was born April 7, 1915, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Considered one of the best jazz vocalists of all time, Holiday had a thriving career as a jazz singer for many years before she lost her battle with substance abuse. Her autobiography was made into the 1972 film Lady Sings the Blues. In 2000, Billie Holiday was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

After years of lackluster recordings and record sales, Holiday recorded Lady in Satin (1958) with the Ray Ellis Orchestra for Columbia. The album's songs showcased her rougher sounding voice, which still could convey great emotional intensity. She gave her final performance in New York City on May 25, 1959. Not long after this event, Holiday was admitted to the hospital for heart and liver problems. She was so addicted to heroin that she was even arrested for possession while in the hospital. On July 17, 1959, Holiday died from alcohol- and drug-related complications.

Phil Long - Founder of Longevity Wines

Winemaker/Founder  Phil Long of Longevity Wines, began his journey making wine in the garage with his wife Debra.  Now with over a decade of winemaking experience, and a list of awards too long to print, Winemaker Phil continues his journey with the constant of always improving in place.  “In the business of winemaking, the minute you think you know it all, it’s time to get out.”
The cellar practices and techniques that Phil uses in the production of wine are constantly re-evaluated and improved, to ultimately elevate the quality of the wines produced.  The grapes are personally sourced and chosen by Phil.  “Great wine starts with great fruit, there is no way around that”.  Grapes are sourced from only the best vineyards for use in the production of Longevity Wines.  Phil began making wine in the Livermore Valley in 2006 under the Longevity label, using other facilities.  It was only a matter of time before production was moved from other facilities, to Longevity’s own facility in Livermore.  Yearly production from 500 cases per year, to the current production of 2500.  Phil enjoys the challenge of making many different wines, and continues to strive for wines that are high in quality instead of high quantities.

Our Culture

We are a unique brand of boutique hotels focused on sharing the rich African American history and culture of the communities where we are located. Our goal is to bring you an experience that will not only tap into your soul but by bringing history to life but tap into your senses through our incredible design style and tantalizing food choices.

Our History

As Founder of the Sojourn Heritage Brand, Kristin Kitchen is also the current owner of Six Acres Bed and Breakfast, a historic site that was once part of the Underground Railroad located in Cincinnati Ohio. After thirteen years in the hospitality industry focusing on the bed and breakfast segment she began to ask these questions: Was is possible to create a brand of bed and breakfast boutique hotels that combined the amenities of a 1st class hotel and the intimacies of a Bed and Breakfast? Could we expand the experience at the “Breakfast Table” into an actual brand that encouraged people from various races, genders and cultures to come together and share their lives with one another. Could we, through deliberative dialogue create transformational experiences for our guest that could perhaps last a lifetime?

Rest in Luxury

The first of its chain will open in Miami Florida on Dec 2017. We chose Miami because it is undoubtedly one of the most diverse cities in America. We chose the community of Overtown, once known as the “Harlem of the South” because of its rich African American history.” Today, the community of Overtown is changing. A multimillion dollar economic redevelopment initiative is in progress.

Embrace Our Vision

We believe that entrepreneurship is a powerful tool when combined with solving social problems in communities and that entrepreneurs can be part of and build businesses that simultaneously earn income and tackle social problems in innovative and effective ways. Sojourn Heritage Accommodations is a social entrepreneurial model designed to increase economic opportunities for community residents to benefit from their own community assets.

Sojourn Heritage Accommodations is built on the idea of creating self-sufficiency through tourism and hospitality. When we open our establishments, rather than relying on outside business to be beneficiaries of community assets, we will create a “virtuous cycle” to employ local people, train them in various sectors of hospitality and tourism i.e. Retailing, Security, technology, food and beverage services and housekeeping to help them grow into business enterprises or increase the revenues of their currently established business.
