Many student groups request educational tours with a specific focus on black history. For years we have been sending groups on these exciting tours, filled with locations from pivotal moments in black history and rich with the stories of its most prominent players. These tours include schools, churches, birthplaces, museums, and national historic sites devoted to honoring African Americans, their struggle for equal rights in this country, and their profound contributions to the nation. Plus, we’ve included exciting, popular attractions in each of the cities we feature. You won’t regret these inspirational tours and the attractions they include.
One popular destination for black history is Dearborn, Michigan. Here you are able step on the very bus upon which Rosa Parks took her powerful stand for civil rights by remaining in her seat when ordered to move. You will also be welcome to discover the Logan County Courthouse, Hermitage Slave Quarters, and the Susquehanna Plantation.
Furthermore, Atlanta is full of history from the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site to Antebellum Plantation and even Stone Mountain Park. The Civil Rights Movement effected the entire nation, escalating in many southern cities such as Atlanta, Nashville, and Birmingham. Walk the historic Alabama trail from Selma to Montgomery, visit Frederick Douglass' home and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., and so much more.
