Supremacy and Anti-Racist Resistance in Chattanooga, TN
Join Chattanooga Organized for Action as we tour
Martin Luther King Boulevard to discuss Chattanooga's history of popular action
against racism. We'll cover the city's early slave market and labor force,
Randolph Miller and the 1905 bus boycott of Jim Crow, the MLK assassination
marches, sit-ins, clergy organizing, riots, the fight to rename the street, the
1980 Klan shooting, and more. Discuss a part of local history that's been
buried as the city has become a major tourist destination.
This tour is organized for COA
members and supporters, but anyone is welcomed to attend.
