Join us on a trip to Montgomery, Alabama to visit the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Justice and Peace.
During the trip we will explore the history of inequity, racism, and other forms of oppression faced by Black people in the United States. We will hear narratives, observe documents, and deconstruct the legacy of slavery and how it connects to injustice and mass incarceration today. This day trip will involve a lot of individual reflection, large and small group dialogue, and movement throughout the area. We hope to provide context to the often silenced history of violence against Black people in the United States. Much of what is on exhibit may not have been included in the K-12 curriculum in many states. Lunch and dinner will be provided.
