The Birmingham Civil Rights Heritage Trail winds through downtown, marking significant locations along the 1963 Civil Rights march routes. Designed as a self-guided tour, the route directs visitors along this historic pathway by maps at each location. The trail speaks to the valor of both common people and to the spiritual leaders who spearheaded the fight against segregation and other forms of racism. Graphic photographs and dramatic cut-outs in the designs of the signs add to the rich experience. It begins at Kelly Ingram Park, on the corner of 6th Avenue North and 16th Street. Started on the 50th anniversary of the historic March, in 2013, when completed it will have more than 200 signs in 70 sites.
