Social Equity in History Walking Tour
August 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$5
For a city of its size in the American South, Greensboro has a remarkable history of social equity that spans more than 100 years. Perhaps those of tolerant Quaker and Jewish faith provided Greensboro’s disenfranchised citizens with community allies. In addition, Greensboro also had a strong “youth culture” from its five colleges and universities that fueled fresh perspectives and new ideas to the South. This social equity tour will visit touchstones and turning points among Greensboro’s historically marginalized communities, including Women, Blacks, Jews, and LGBTQ+ citizens. The tour primarily focuses on several blocks in the center city that connect various sites with historical associations that will allow tourgoers to learn more about alternative storylines in the city’s history.
This tour meets in front of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum and will take 60 to 90 minutes. Wear comfortable shoes! This event is limited to 15 attendees.
