The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s reshaped the history of the United States and the world, creating an important and inspiring legacy that endures to this day. In Alabama, the cities of Montgomery, Birmingham, and Selma were home to some of the key turning points of this historic movement.
These cities hold special significance as sites where the national leadership of the Civil Rights Movement took shape, and where tens of thousands of people came together to advance the cause of racial justice. This journey will take you into these cities to visit several locations which housed and nurtured the Civil Rights Movement throughout the era.
You will have the special opportunity to speak first-hand with veterans of the struggle, many who have worked tirelessly to preserve this important cultural heritage. You will also visit and experience the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, two institutions which have taken diverse and complementary approaches to telling the rich and moving stories of the Civil Rights Movement and the history of America’s ongoing mission to achieve racial equality.
