The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s was a struggle for social justice and an end to institutional racism, disenfranchisement, and racial segregation in the United States. In Alabama, the cities of Montgomery, Birmingham, and Selma were host to some of the most significant events of the decades-long campaign. Here, the Movement's national leadership took shape and tens of thousands of people came together to advance the cause against remarkable odds and violent resistance.

This transformational civil rights journey provides exclusive opporutnities to engage first-hand with the actual foot soldiers and activists of the movmenet. As a participant, you'll visit several places that housed and nurtured the movement throughout the era and have a special opportunity to speak with and learn from veterans of the struggle, many of whom have worked tirelessly for the cause in the decades since. You will also visit and experience the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI), The Southern Poverty Law Center, and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice–three institutions that have taken diverse and complementary approaches to the narrative of the Civil Rights Movement and of the United States’ long history of racial inequality.

Dr. Quintin Dixie, Associate Research Professor of the History of Christianity in the United States and Black Church Studies, will be traveling with you. 

Registration Deadline: Friday, December 2.
