Film: Creating Heritage Bike Tours

Nedra Deadwyler shares how her search of local history led to creating heritage bike tours business, Civil Bikes. Providing tours in Atlanta Georgia that marry civil rights, history lessons, and art with a two-wheeled showcase of the city.

They are a perfect way to deal with the tough topics in history and current political world the landscape speaks and by showing participants how to listen to the environment is part of the journey.

Nedra will discuss the role and importance of public history as museum work, the process of creating tours, what arise in the discussions, and why this arrangement of walking and biking tours are a perfect way to deal with the specific racial history of the south and America.
