Alabama Civil Rights Tour

Civil Rights Tour

Your students could spend a lifetime in Alabama studying the Civil Rights Movement; however, in this 2 or 3 day trip, they are sure to experience enough of the historic time period to deepen their understanding of both the Civil Rights Movement, as well as the bigger fight for the fundamental rights of all human beings. This trip begins in Montgomery and your students will get to bear witness to many of the most important sites of the time period. A quick stop in Selma will allow your students to see, firsthand, two iconic locations, including the site of “Bloody Sunday”. Day two engulfs your students in Birmingham’s role in the fight for Civil, and human, rights. This is a very fast moving, tightly packed trip; however, because of the amount of history packed in, we think every stop is essential!
