More Information on
MLK Walking Tour Atlanta
Known as “The Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement,” Atlanta emerged as the epicenter for activism from 1940 to 1970. It became the cultural catalyst for freedom without discrimination or repression. Black leaders called for voting rights, access to public facilities and institutions, and economic and educational opportunities for African Americans. The civil rights movement had a spiritual home in Atlanta. There, the influence of Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife on civil rights history can still be felt today. Here, King first had “his dream” while honing a compelling speech that would seismically impact US race relations.
Segregation, inequality, and discrimination once defined the city. Atlanta had a more progressive attitude to racial integration than the rest of America’s South, even before the Civil Rights Movement. It had appointed several black officials, desegregated public transport, inching towards more sweeping social and political change. By the early 1960s, Sweet Auburn had become the hub for the activism that would power the city’s remarkable civil rights journey. Purchase your MLK Walking Tour Atlanta tickets today!
