Participants engage in a week-long journey exploring iconic human and civil rights spaces in Memphis, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma. In addition to museums in most of the cities, we also visit the Lorraine Motel in Memphis; the 16th Street Baptist Church and Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham; the Equal Justice Initiative’s new Lynching Memorial in Montgomery; and the iconic Edmund Pettus Bridge and Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma, among other interesting sites. This extraordinary pilgrimage satiates the participants’ quest for greater meaning as we contemplate the cornerstones of democracy.
We start the trip from Allen College in Waterloo on Monday (Nov 8) at 0700, and we return to the same location on Friday night (Nov 12) by 2300. Participants are able to leave their cars in the Allen College parking lot at no cost for the week.
