Follow in the footsteps of some of the most important moments in American history, half a century ago, during the Civil Rights movement. Start in Atlanta, Georgia, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born. Visit the cornerstones of his life, from the house where he was born to his final resting place, learning and finding inspiration along the way. Next, cross state lines into Alabama, where you’ll visit Tuskegee, home of the legendary all-Black Red Tails Airforce unit that fought in the second world war, George Washington Carver, and Booker T. Washington. Stop in Selma, known for the Civil Rights marches that were held here, including Bloody Sunday, and on to Birmingham, where Rosa Parks made her stand. Allow the fight of those who came before us to fill you with pride and remind you that it is people who make history.

Arrive Atlanta, Georgia’s buzzing capital, an exciting, diverse city where you can spend days exploring its history, cuisine and getting to know its people.

Tonight, enjoy a welcome dinner at a local restaurant for a taste of Atlanta’s flavors. AC HOTEL.
