We March for Justice is a one-week study and tour of the American Civil Rights Movement with focus on the South. Eight students will be selected from an application process to participate. Led by Dr. David Williard and Dr. Todd Lawrence who are co-teaching Black Resilience this fall and Cynthia Fraction, M.A. of the Excel! Research Scholars Program, we will examine issues relating to race and oppression, Jim Crow, the strength of race and community as a collective, and how working together helps to move America forward. Through field experiences, readings, videos, meetings with foot soldiers, and class discussions, this study tour will explore some challenging history centered on racial oppression and the struggles for equality; yesterday, and today. The study and tour seek to address the question: What provokes social change and justice in America? We invite you to apply!
