African-American History Tour

Classic City Tours’ two-hour program is led by Rosa Thurmond, a native Athenian who was one of the first African Americans selected to attend Athens High School prior to its official desegregation, as well as the first woman to be recorded live at the Morton Theatre. In addition to hearing enlightening commentary as the bus travels around to various historic sites in town, the group will step off at two of four locations (depending upon availability): artist Harold Rittenberry’s sculpture yard, the Morton Theatre, H.T. Edwards Career Academy or First A.M.E. Church. Reservations can be made by calling 706-353-1820 or visiting athenswelcomecenter.com
