African American History Tours


March 4 & 11, 2:00PM

The Athens Welcome Center will be holding two African American History Tours with Rosa Thurmond. Mrs. Thurmond covers poignant moments in the transition of schools during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement and shares stories about the teachers and leaders who anchored neighborhoods and shaped the Athens we know today. In addition to her bus tour commentary, the group will step off at two of the following locations (subject to availability): H.T. Edwards Career Academy, Artist Harold Rittenbury’s Sculpture Yard, First A.M.E. Church, or the Morton Theatre.
