The American South: Deep Dive into Civil Rights History

Living Legacy Pilgrimages offer participants a transformative journey to connect with the people, listen to the stories, and visit the pivotal sites of the Civil Rights Movement. The experience commences in either Birmingham, Alabama, marked by the tragic 1963 bombing at the 16th Street Baptist Church, or Memphis, Tennessee, where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated and where the National Civil Rights Museum is housed. Tailored to the specific needs of participants or groups, these journeys typically span four to eight days.

This pilgrimage transcends a mere civil rights history tour. Alongside visiting historic landmarks, participants engage with veterans, including many unsung heroes and foot soldiers of the civil rights movement. The program also involves an exploration of contemporary issues such as racism, white privilege, and barriers to equality in both the visited towns and communities across America. By collectively reflecting on their experiences, participants are empowered to apply their insights upon returning home, contributing to positive change in today’s world.

Educational Travel Adventures is proud to partner with the Living Legacy Project to manage registration and travel logistics for their pilgrimages.
