Absolutely wonderful tour, even though Covid has the museums shut down. My son and I learned a ton and have a whole new appreciation for the current movements happening in our nation. The host was super informative, compassionate towards the cause, and kept us engaged.

The tour was fantastic and packed full of great knowledge for anyone willing to expand their mind to past civil rights history. Recently our country has been facing more civil rights issues so it was awesome to link the past to the present to better understand our country’s current problems as well! The tour lasts around 3 hours total so I’d recommend bringing a water bottle because there is plenty of walking on this tour. Overall, the experience was awesome and I encourage anyone who is thinking about it, to go!

The tour guide was so passionate in his narrative that I was deeply moved. It’s good to be informed of the social injustice from the past. Sad it’s still so prevalent today. Excellent tour!
