Had a fabulous Civil Rights tour today with Jake Williams. He does a wonderful job of weaving his personal experiences into the broader history of the civil rights movement, with a level of detail that I have not experienced in similar tours. This was by far the best historical tour I've ever had. Highly recommended.
