Learn about African-American history and culture with a trip to Atlanta, one of the cities in the forefront of the civil rights movement. Iconic businesses and museums in the destination —called the “black mecca” by Ebony magazine — provide a look at life ranging from Jim Crow laws and segregation to the effects of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act. Note: Phone ahead or consult a AAA Travel Agent for travel planning since some places to see may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19 or require advance reservations and other safety procedures.
