Middle School Civil Rights - Alabama & Georgia

Traveling through Selma, Birmingham and Atlanta, studnts will learn about the Civil Rights Movement, engage in service projects that will connect them with local communities, and soak up the culture of the American South.

Potential projects include helping out at a senior center, tutoring students, volunteering at a literacy center and a collaborative project with the middle school students of the RB Hudson Middle School in Selma.

Education: We will be visiting a number of well known sites in the area including: the Edmund Pettus bridge (start of the historic Selma to Montgomery march), the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, the Rosa Parks Museum and the Southern Poverty Law Center.  We will also be meeting with leaders from the local communities, including Joanne Bland, Charles Person, Attorney Fred Gray, Dr. Carolyn McKinstry and workers from the Equal Justice Initiative.  

Community Engagement: We will be partnering with schools in Selma and Birmingham to meet with other middle school students and get to know the local communities through fun activities and more.

**This trip will not run during the 2017-18 school year.
