Tour Overview

Set off on a 1-hour historical Nashville walking tour. Embark on a fun-filled experience which uncovers the empowering history and controversies behind the key women of the civil rights movement.

What We’ll Do

Regardless of your gender, this Nashville walking tour is a fun-filled experience uncovering the empowering history and controversies behind the key women of the civil rights movement. You will hear stories about history’s fiercest females from the early settlement to civil rights and beyond.

Visit the Davidson County Courthouse and stand on the front steps where civil rights leader, Diane Nash, confronted the mayor demanding change. Then, discover how women played a central role in the planning, strategies, tactics, and actions of the movement — including the civil rights marches. Enter the Witness Walls, a secret art attraction with hidden images that has a math and science component.

In between stops, you will get the inside scoop on leading female entrepreneurs and business leaders in Nashville today. With United Street Tours, you’ll take action by walking to celebrate women in the world, and particularly women in the South.
