Description

This MLK Day, visit historic Oakland Cemetery for a free offering of the guided tour, We Shall Overcome: African American Stories from Civil War to Civil Rights.

"We Shall Overcome" became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, but the origin of the song dates back to antebellum days and a spiritual sung by enslaved people, "No More Auction Block for Me." This tour of Oakland Cemetery explores the lives and accomplishments of outstanding, and ordinary, African Americans who fought to overcome the effects of slavery and discrimination to help shape the history of Atlanta.
