Southern Civil Rights Pilgrimage
When: October 21 - 24
Join us for a historical and spiritual journey through the southeast this October 21-24. Explore the historic sites of the Civil Rights Movement with prayerful reflection connecting the freedom struggle of the past to our present realities. This pilgrimage is an invitation to understand the work of racial justice as a critical component of our Christian discipleship, tracing particular elements of the history of race in the U.S. and tangibly equipping believers to begin to live as ambassadors of reconciliation.
Tentative sites include Whitney Plantation in Louisiana; the John and Vera Mae Perkins Center in Jackson, Mississippi; National Voting Rights Museum in Selma, Alabama; and the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama.
All stages and ages 10 and up are welcome! Kids and students under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian.
Estimated cost is $1,200-$1,500. Partial scholarships are available with application.
