Jake Williams with Montgomery Tours is a self-described child of the Civil Rights Movement. Raised in nearby Lowndes County, he was a participant in the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March. Those who take his tours are moved by his level of detail as he tells of his experience and that of others he knew.
More Than Tours is led by its founder and visionary artist Michelle Browder. Her mission “Exposing Our Children To The Truth, Will Give Them Access To A Seat At The Table.” is lived through her work providing educational tours for underserved students in marginalized communities of color. Her tours are also offered to the public and include a powerful stop at her work The Mothers of Gynecology Monument. The injustice behind her monument is one that demands to be told.
Montgomery native Wanda Battle was raised during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and she brings her experience to the groups she leads at her company, Legendary Tours. Along the way, Wanda shares historical accounts, songs and stories, all with the hope of engaging in life-changing conversations with those on her tours.
Spring weather invites visitors to take a walk around the city. The Experience Montgomery Visitor Center staff leads April Walking Tours to point out key locations in the city’s past and to share stories of those who shaped the community.
