Surrounded by the bliss of country music, it is a little-known fact that Nashville was at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. However, students at the city’s predominantly black universities led the way in non-violent protests in the 1950s and 60s. Journey with your fun and informative guides to attractions and local hideaways around the city that are significant to the Civil Rights Movement on this 1.5-hour walking tour.
