Margaret’s love of Atlanta’s evolvement showed through her fact-packed narrative. I learned how ML King’s heritage and social environment nourished his commitment to justice.

This is an excellent tour!!! Margaret was our tour guide, and not only was she very helpful and knowledgeable, but she was also very personable. This tour isn't just about seeing many places, it's about understanding the meaning and the stories of a movement, of men, women, and children who helped make this nation a better place for all of us to live today. Margaret does a great job of connecting all the stories, the events, the actors, and the artifacts in a coherent whole. Truly an excellent tour!!!!
