Centerstreet – Dynamite Hill

Created in partnership with longtime residents of Centerstreet, this tour focuses on Civil Rights history. The area became known as “Dynamite Hill” because so many bombs were placed here to try to scare Civil Rights leaders during the Civil Rights Movement. Learn about the important work of those in this neighborhood, the effects of red-lining, and the conditions that changed both the neighborhood and the future of Birmingham. Officially designated a part of the Civil Rights Trail, the tour will illuminate a significant time and place in Birmingham’s history.
