After the turn of the century, Jim Crow laws authorizing the distinct separation of “the races” and subsequent restrictions placed on black firms forced the growing black business community into an area along third, fourth and fifth avenues north from 15th to 18th streets. This area served as the business, social and cultural centre for black activities similar to those in the predominantly white districts. The businesses located in this area included barber and beauty shops, banks, mortuaries, theatres, motels and nightclubs. These black businesses and their successors continued to do well throughout the 60′s. Today, many businesses still operate in the district, serving a steady stream of customers of all races.  We visit Kelly Ingram Park, the heart of the Civil Rights District where events took place in Kelly Ingram Park vividly portrayed the realities of police dogs and firehoses turned on marchers who gathered for civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s.  After lunch (own expense), we'll take a guided tour of 16th Street Baptist Church, site of a supremacist terrorism bombing before Sunday morning services on September 15, 1963 at the predominantly black congregation.  This afternoon we visit the Civil Rights Institute, a large interpretive museum and research centre that depicts the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s.
