The New Civil Rights Trail Has Over 100 Stops Throughout The South
America’s new Civil Rights Trail is about to officially debut and will feature over 100 stops all across the south.
The Civil Rights Trail will let travelers walk in the footsteps of social justice heroes in a path that extends north to south from Wilmington, Delaware to New Orleans before winding east to west from Topeka, Kansas to Richmond, Virginia.
Along the way, the trail will traverse 14 states and stop at sites like the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. It will also include stops at the Old Courthouse in Monroeville, hometown of Harper Lee, and the Greensboro Woolworth’s Lunch counter where sit-in protests against segregation were held in 1960.
The official launch of the Civil Rights Trail will be in January 2018. You can get a sneak peek of the trail at its preview website.
