1908 Race Riot walking tour

Forty-three years after Abraham Lincoln’s assassination and just six months before his 100th birthday, many of his hometown African American friends and their descendant’s lives were turned upside down by racial hate and economic jealousy during the Springfield 1908 Race Riot. This hour-long tour will visit a portion of the devastating 1908 Race Riot. Begins and ends at the Old State Capitol. Reservations, which are required, can be made through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources website.
