Civil Rights: The American Story

OVERVIEW

Student experiences in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Illinois will connect the Southern Civil Rights period of the 1960s to a larger, more expansive narrative of social justice in America. On the trip, America’s imperfect story will take shape. Students will be able to understand the economic relationship between the North and the South that spans the domestic slave trade to multiple waves of immigration in the 20th century. Following the trip, students will have a foundation to explore more personal interests in a recommended winter term Civil Rights course.
