8:00 am - Full hot breakfast

9:30 am - Freedom Ride Museum

In 1961 groups of volunteers made history by challenging the practice of segregated travel through the South. They called themselves Freedom Riders as they crossed racial barriers in depots and onboard buses. The 1961 Freedom Riders did not begin or end their journey in Montgomery, Alabama, but their arrival changed the city and our nation.

Freedom Riders, black and white, male and female, none of them older than 22, stepped off a bus at the Montgomery Greyhound Station on May 20, 1961. They were prepared to meet mob violence with non-violence and courage. They prepared farewell letters and wills. Their goal was to help end racial segregation in public transportation. And they did.


10:30 am - Depart to National Center for the Study of Civil Rights & African American Culture at ASU

11:00 am - National Center for the Study of Civil Rights & African American Culture at ASU

The Alabama State University Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African-American Culture is a research institute and repository in Montgomery, Alabama, for the collection of civil rights and African-American cultural documents, artifacts, and other memorabilia. Such a collection encompasses and allows for the study of the interdisciplinary, diverse, and disparate character of civil rights and African-American culture. Although this undertaking will naturally encompass and extend to other resources throughout the state, the Center's focus is on Montgomery and its unique role in American history as the cradle of both the Confederacy and the modern civil rights movement.


12:00 pm - Depart to Martha's Place

12:15 pm  - Lunch at Martha's Place 

Black-owned restaurant - Martha's Place is now a nationally known destination for anyone visiting the Deep South and a culinary fixture of life in Montgomery. Martha only hires folks who are down on their luck, just as she once was. High-profile politicians, professional athletes, artists, musicians, and actors visit regularly. Martha has proven many times that keeping the faith makes the difference between failure and success.


1:15 pm - Depart to The National Memorial for Peace and Justice

1:30 pm - The National Memorial for Peace and Justice

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice is the nation’s first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved black people, people terrorized by lynching, African Americans humiliated by racial segregation and Jim Crow, and people of color burdened with contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence. 


2:30 pm - The Legacy Museum

The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration is situated on a site in Montgomery where enslaved people were once warehoused. A block from one of the most prominent slave auction spaces in America, the Legacy Museum is steps away from an Alabama dock and rail station where tens of thousands of black people were trafficked during the 19th century.
