Vision

Civil Rights Tourism

Tuscaloosa will become an important tourist destination for civil rights history through the implementation of a civil rights trail, museum, and other resources recognizing historical honesty as a vital companion to economic, moral, and intellectual prosperity.

To that end we shall work to:

  • Establish a Civil Rights Trail for the city and environs;
  • Place Tuscaloosa on the Alabama Civil Rights Trail;
  • Locate markers in appropriate, significant areas;
  • Offer tours of these locations;
  • Collect artifacts and memorabilia (or digital representations) for the purposes of preservation and exhibition;
  • Provide opportunities for community events;
  • Plan for an eventual Tuscaloosa Civil Rights Museum.

This community endeavor includes Tuscaloosa area citizens who experienced and participated in the events of “Bloody Tuesday”, leaders within the community, and faculty and staff and students from Stillman College and the University of Alabama.
