alternative fall break 2019 (Re)Telling History: exploring civil rights from Selma to Montgomery

Keanan Alt Fall Break 2019


How do we think about race and civil rights in the contemporary US given the historical legacy of slavery, lynching and segregation? How does the current polarization of the polity reflect this complex history? How does it affect our collective memory? Explore these themes while visiting the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, walking the Edmund Pettis Bridge with someone who marched from Selma to Montgomery a half century ago; and seeing the places where this history was made. 

Meals and travel covered for all accepted students.

Applications due Sunday, September 15th by 11:59pm (apply here)
