Road to Freedom Wagon Tour
Saturday, March 3, 2018
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 “foot soldiers” 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.
