It is a little-known fact that Nashville was at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. Students at local historically Black colleges and universities led the way in nonviolent protests in the 1950s and 60s.

Journey with us to attractions and local hideaways around the city that are significant to the Civil Rights Movement on this walking tour.

On this downtown walking tour, you’ll experience the civil rights story and gain renewed activism around race and equality. You’ll learn about the key leaders and events of the movement. This tour reminds us all that the movement is a part of American history, not just African American history.

• See rare and unique attractions that make for the best photo ops.
• Experience a fun “behind-the-scenes” take on the story of the Music City with an “off-the-beaten-path” approach.
• Private and group tour options available.
