3 cheers for Kim Severson’s piece in the NY Times about touring Atlanta civil rights sites

Thanks to the May 3 piece by Kim Severson about teaching kids about civil rights history with a mostly walking tour of civil rights sites, I realized that we’re going to have to return to Atlanta to visit two museums that we missed when we started our Freedom Summer trips nearly a decade ago: The Center for Civil and Human Rights and the African-American Panoramic Experience Museum. It was great to see someone else encouraging adults to take kids on this kind of historical tourism.
