Overview

60 to 90 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

This tour peals back the façade and reveals the true and devastating experience that was the day to day life of African Americans in the most segregated city in the country. Led by Wilhelmina Thomas, who is a storyteller, a needlewoman and a craftivist who grew up on the west side of Birmingham, Alabama in the Riley, Wenonah and Hillman communities. She attended Wenonah Elementary, Riley Elementary and Jones Valley High Schools. Her earliest memories include the church, the civic league and the Civil Rights Movement. It is these lived experiences which fuel passion about Afro, Afro American and Birmingham history.
