Civil War to Civil Rights History Walk
This 90-minute tour highlights historic events that reveal both Oberlin's progress and setbacks in race relations dating from early Oberlin all the way up to the 21st Century. Learn how Oberlin was a leader in abolition, participating heavily in events such as the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue, the Raid on Harpers Ferry, and the American Civil War, but also struggled with its own issues of equality and racism during these early years and later through Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, and today.

$6/adult; free for students and children. Advance registration is required and space is limited to 30 participants. Call 440-774-1700 or visit www.oberlinheritagecenter.org to register. In case of rain, the tour will be cancelled.
