Details

You won’t want to miss our trip to visit the Birthplace of the modern Civil Rights Movement and site of Montgomery Bus Boycotts - Montgomery, Ala. While we’re in Montgomery, we’ll visit the Rosa Parks Museum, the Civil Rights Memorial & Center, and the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, which was the home church for Dr. Martin Luther King, and we’ll visit his parsonage home in Montgomery - which was bombed as he became the leader of the Civil Rights movement. This will be a great way to celebrate Black History Month! The cost for the sites are as follows: $7.50 for the Rosa Parks Museum, $2.50 for the Civil Rights Memorial, and $11.00 for both the Dexter Avenue Church and Martin Luther King's parsonage home. Tours of one or all 4 sites, or any combination, are optional.

We’ll depart by carpool at 9:00 a.m. from the I-HOP near Union Station (formerly Shannon) Mall, off I-85 South (Exit 64) and return to Atlanta by 6:00 p.m. (please be prepared to share in the carpool gas costs if you are not driving). Get a first hand look at the history and contributions of those who gave so much in the Civil Rights movement. Note: For planning purposes, and to receive event updates, please RSVP if you plan to attend.
