AIZEN Private Civil Rights Tour
Price - $60 | Length - 3 hours | Language - English & français
Welcome to the Fight for Rights Tour, our Civil Rights tour in Birmingham. On this 3-hour walking and bus tour in English and français, we'll cover many of the major landmarks from the Civil Rights era in Birmingham, AL. Join us as we learn about the ACMHR, the KKK, and a whole host of organizations battling for power, control, and the fate of the Magic City.
We'll take a look at where Bull Connor reigned and where Fred Shuttlesworth prayed. As we learn how Communism shaped the Movement, we'll see where a First Lady was treated like a second class citizen and the home of the "Dixiecrat" Convention. Finally, we'll follow the footsteps of attacking Klansmen and walk the streets of the determined marchers.
Chasing racism all over town, we'll learn how it impacted everyone each and every day. Replay where bombs blew up and what happened when segregation finally fell on our Fight for Rights Tour.
