The Harlem Civil Rights Multimedia Bus / Walking Tour

The idea of this tour is to convey what the Civil Rights Movement was, what it meant to the country/world, and the role that Harlem

leaders and community organizations played in the movement.

Hear the voice of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., as he denounces the Vietnam War while we approach the Riverside Church. Watch video of Malcolm X, as he rally’s a crowd with words of wisdom and truth.  Feel the energy of former Congressman and Religious leader Rev. Adam C.
