The history of African American progress.
Do you have what it take to be a Freedom Fighter? Looking back on history, it’s easy for students to say they would have been a Civil Rights activist. But the decision gets harder when they are confronted with real-time decisions that require them to show courage, determination and discipline to stick together in a non-violent struggle.
All Guided School Tours are from 10am-12pm Monday-Friday*.
*If a school tour is booked on a Monday, please note that the museum is not open to the general public. Atlanta History Center will provide schools full access to the designated tour areas.
