Civil Rights in the Rocket City

Learn more about Huntsville’s intentionally peaceful transition from a segregated town to an integrated city through this presentation by Sonnie Hereford IV and Rocket City Civil Right (RCCR).

Hereford will share sites and placed associated with Huntsville’s civil rights movement.

Through grants from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, RCCR has interviewed key figures in Huntsville’s civil right history and captured the personal recollections of those who lived this history on a daily basis.

Key places and sites associated with Huntsville’s Civil Rights history has been compiled and is available on a Driving Tour App.
