Birmingham Civil Rights Tour - 16th Street Baptist Church

In the heart of Birmingham, Alabama, lies a monument to one of the most significant chapters in American history—the Civil Rights Movement of 1963. This monument is not made of stone or metal; it’s etched into the very fabric of the city, telling a profound story of resilience, courage, and the pursuit of justice.

This singularly powerful walking tour through the Civil Rights National Monument is led by our guide, who lived the events she is speaking of.  Wilhelmina is a storyteller, a needlewoman, and a craftivist who grew up in the segregated west side of Birmingham, Alabama, in the Riley, Wenonah, and Hillman communities.  Her earliest memories include the church, the civic league, and the Civil Rights Movement. These lived experiences fuel passion for Afro, Afro-American, and Birmingham history.  Her perspective gives this tour its unique point of view that is unmatched by other tours through the Civil Rights District.

The 1963 Civil Rights Experience is not just a collection of tours; it’s a call to action. It’s a reminder that history is not a distant memory but a living, breathing force that shapes our present and future. It’s an opportunity to connect with the past and carry the lessons of the Civil Rights Movement into our daily lives.

Join us on this meaningful journey through Birmingham’s historic monument. Let’s walk together, learn together, and work together to create a more just and equitable world.
