Great historical walking tour which I think is mandatory for everyone to do when visiting Alabama. I finished off by doing the Civil Rights Museum which drove home the horror of life in the Jim Crow era

The district has always been very special. The history located there has driven our country. Now, through the work of locals and Mayor William Bell the district is a National Monument. The Civil Rights story will continue to be told.
