Overview

For three hours you will be on a tour like no other. Every location will evoke a time and period of Civil Rights, including Ralph Abernathy’s West Hunter Street Church, the mural of John Lewis on Auburn Avenue and the office on Auburn Avenue where MLK, Abernathy, Andrew Young and Hosea Williams made decisions that changed the world.

If you live in Atlanta and haven't done Tom Houck's Civil Rights Tour, then you really haven't lived in Atlanta. If you're visiting Atlanta, do this tour if you can't do anything else! This will be three of the best hours you have spent anywhere!
