Fight For Your Rights

The history of African American progress.

Virtual Tour

Do you have what it takes to be a Freedom Fighter? Travel back in time with us and find out!

Students will explore the Civil Rights era and connect it to social movements throughout history. Our time travel guides will take students back to the 1960s and immerse them in the Atlanta Student Movement and the Atlanta Sit-Ins through compelling storytelling and historical performances. Students will receive an inside look at the planning, strategy, and sacrifices made by the founding group of students from the Atlanta University Center to end segregation in Atlanta; and will receive a special message from an original freedom fighter, Charles Black, as he passes the mantle to the next generation of changemakers.

This virtual tour combines self-guided, choose-your-own journey digital experiences, primary source-archival footage, historical performances, live talkback discussions, and a FlipGrid extended learning activity.

You don’t want to miss this groundbreaking educational experience—it is sure to engage, inspire, and inform.

Onsite Tour

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.
