Atlanta Civil Rights Bus Tour

First Year (undergraduate, graduate, and transfer students) can participate in a customized Civil Rights Tour of Atlanta, visiting sites like the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, the King Center, Dr. King’s last home, Morehouse College, SCLC & SNCC, and more. The tour will be conducted by Mr. Tom Houck.  From 1966 until King’s assassination in 1968, Tom served as a driver and personal assistant to Dr. King and his family. Houck also became the youngest member of the SCLC executive staff working with organizations to end the Vietnam War and mobilizing for the “Poor People Campaign”. At the end of the tour participants will be treated to lunch. This special tour is limited to 30 participants.
