From the Montgomery Bus Boycott, to the Freedom Riders, to the Bloody Sunday confrontation on the Edmund Pettis Bridge and the March from Selma to Montgomery, to the Freedom Schools of Freedom Summer, and more… Georgia and Alabama have been home to both horrific and heroic moments. Today the south is also home to numerous memorials, museums, and monuments to these moments in history.
Join us as we examine and remember our history, recognize and celebrate our heroes, and reflect on the on-going struggle that is race in America. Our five-day trip, will take us to Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham, in Alabama as well as Atlanta, Georgia, and will include lodgings, most meals, flights, ground transportation, entries into museums, monuments, and memorials, and of course group dialogue that will challenge us to explore these powerful topics for ourselves, our group and our community. The trip is coordinated by the Caltech Center for Diversity and the Caltech Y and made possible thanks to the Frank and Elsie Stefanko, and George Housner, Funds.
