Telegraph Berkeley Tour App

Boston has the Freedom Trail, Atlanta has a Civil Rights Tour, and now Berkeley — home of the Free Speech Movement — has launched its own Telegraph Tour, bringing five decades of revolutionary history to life.

In true Berkeley fashion, there is a twist to this tour: while other cities offer paper maps and metal plaques to guide visitors through their historic districts, the Telegraph Tour is designed as an immersive, app-enabled experience. The Telegraph Berkeley Tour app features audio interviews, historical photos and an interactive, GPS-based map that helps visitors navigate to the different locations. For those who are out of town, or prefer their history from the comfort of a couch or internet café, the interviews and photos can also be accessed remotely.

The tour introduces visitors to events such as the Free Speech Movement; the building of, and riots at, People’s Park; the civil rights shop-ins at Lucky’s Supermarket; a landmark related to the Japanese internment; milestones in the disability rights movement; as well as some iconic book stores and theaters. On every corner of Telegraph Avenue, it seems, history rubs shoulders with characters and businesses that are still very much alive today.
