After skimming a few reviews at TA, I was hoping that Shirley would be my tour guide. We had another more low-key lady (also with personal experience with MLK), but Shirley introduced the tour in a most engaging way by bringing in a surprise drop-in...More

We had a fabulous and personal tour by Dr Shirley Cherry. She offered so much information, and not just about MLK. We were sorry that our time was limited and we had to pull ourselves away.
