Prepare to take a walk through the cradle of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement

As a Scout in Troop 151 in the late 1930s, the young Martin Luther King, Jr. met at the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. The church is located on “Sweet Auburn” Avenue, one of the most vibrant and successful African American corridors in the nation during that time. You are invited to explore this historic  neighborhood followed by a hike to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. Along the way you will pass  important landmarks and buildings that played vital  roles in the fight for Civil Rights.
