Road to Freedom Wagon Tour
Saturday, February 2, 2019
10:00 am – 11:00 am
Lest we forget: one hundred years BEFORE the 1965 Voting Rights March focused on the Dallas county courthouse in nearby Selma, a brave community of recently emancipated African-Americans gathered around an older courthouse in Cahawba.
These 19th-century citizens exercised their right to vote and - for a brief time - gained great political power. This wagon tour tells the story of Cahawba's African American majority and traces their path from slavery to freedom with a special emphasis on how they reshaped Cahawba as they pursued their dreams of equality. Call 334-872-8058 for more information or visit www.cahawba.com or www.facebook.com/oldcahawba.
