We Shall Overcome: Free MLK Jr. Day Tour

January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

This MLK Day, visit historic Oakland Cemetery for an offering of our tour, “We Shall Overcome: African American Stories from Civil War to Civil Rights.”

“We Shall Overcome” became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, but the origin of the song dates back to antebellum days and a spiritual sung by enslaved people, “No More Auction Block for Me.” This tour explores the lives and accomplishments of outstanding, and ordinary, African Americans who fought to overcome the effects of slavery and discrimination to help shape the history of Atlanta.

This tour is full. See more free offerings of our “We Shall Overcome: African American Stories from Civil War to Civil Rights” tour

Donations are greatly appreciated and will be designated specifically for the ongoing restoration of the African American Burial Grounds.

This tour is light rain or shine. We will cancel if there is inclement weather and all registered attendees will receive an email notification.
