civil rights trip: history, justice & freedom

July 28 – August 4, 2018

Explore powerful stories of the past and the present with a transformative trip through Georgia and Alabama. Walk across the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma, AL while commemorating marchers’ bravery on Bloody Sunday. Follow in the footsteps of Rosa Parks as she put her non-violent training in action at the beginning of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Hear from the foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham, Anniston and Selma. In Montgomery, the past informs our present as we look into the issues highlighted in Bryan Stevenson’s ‘Just Mercy’. Stevenson’s book lays out his work on the behalf of the wrongly incarcerated, inmates on death row without fair trial, children tried as adults  and others caught in the cruel world of  our judicial system .  We’ll visit with those working towards social justice, at his organization, the Equal Justice Initiative and contemplate how our  history has grown into a world still fractured by racism.
