Hallowed Grounds Tours (Fall 2022)


Hallowed Grounds campus tours, which highlight the history and legacy of slavery at the University of Alabama, are based on the archival research of Dr. Hilary Green. Led by current graduate students and faculty in the Department of Gender and Race Studies, tours are free and open to the public and last approximately 45 minutes.

For Fall 2022, tours are led every Wednesday at 3:15 PM. Our first tour will be Sept. 21. Please meet by the historic marker in front of the Gorgas House Museum (810 Capstone Dr., Tuscaloosa AL 35401). Participants are encouraged to dress for outdoor walking and bring water. In case of inclement weather, indoor virtual tours will be held at the same time in B.B. Comer Hall 259 (400 McCorvey Dr., Tuscaloosa AL 35401).

Off-schedule tours for classes or groups may be arranged, pending docent availability, by emailing Dr. Erin Stoneking (erstoneking@ua.edu). Requests should be made no later than two weeks in advance of your requested tour date.
