Phoenix Flies: A Celebration of Atlanta’s Historic Sites provides an opportunity to learn about, celebrate, and strengthen Atlanta’s historic and cultural assets. Created in 2003 by the Atlanta Preservation Center, Phoenix Flies celebrates the anniversary of the dramatic rescue of the Fox Theater, an event that permanently shaped Atlanta’s preservation ethos.

Join Dr. La'Neice Littleton, Director of Community Collaborations, for an exploration of people, places, and events in Atlanta's Black history. This tour of artifacts throughout the museum tells stories of notable African American figures, locations, and transformative events in the city's history. This experience is designed to invite participants to consider how the city's history fits in the larger contexts of African American History, Georgia History, and U.S. History.  

Tour is limited to 30 people; we will be walking/standing most of the tour, so please wear comfortable shoes. Check in at Atlanta History Center, 10 minutes before tour time.
