  • Civil Rights History Club

    We saw so many things on the Civil Rights History Club to Alabama this summer! 16th st Baptist Church, Kelly Ingram Park, Civil Rights Institute, 4th Avenue Business District (some of our boys got free haircuts at the barbershop while we listened to real life advice from a local man who bought them a giant bag of chicken wings) In Birmingham. In Selma we visited the Voting Rights Museum, had an interactive experience at the slavery museum, and walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. In Montgomery, we went to the Rosa Parks museum, the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the Legacy Museum, hung out on the front porch of MLKJ’s house, and spent some time sitting on the steps of the capital. In Memphis...the Lorraine Motel, and ended our trip with food at Central Barbecue, and a walk on Beale Street. 
    Of course, the evening swims and hanging out together in the dorm was a blast too, and a nice way to recover after all the learning each day.
