"Stony the Road We Trod...": Exploring Alabama's Civil Rights Legacy

A three-week institute for thirty school teachers on the history and legacy of the civil rights movement in Alabama.

"Stony the Road We Trod...": Exploring Alabama's Civil Rights Legacy offers educators a rare opportunity to explore America’s Second Revolution for Civil and Human Rights in an interactive, intensive institute. Often referred to as, the “Heart of Dixie,” the “Cradle of the Confederacy," and the “Birthplace of the Modern Civil Rights Movement,” Alabama's story is one of great magnitude and depth that must be explored in thought and discussion as much as through text and research in order to understand and appreciate the significance of the role it played in shifting the strategy and outcomes of the national and global struggles for civil rights. Through lectures and discussions with noted scholars; interactions with foot soldiers of the Movement; trips to key sites of memory; and primary source research, participants will better understand how events in Alabama impacted the struggle for civil rights around the world. This inspiring, three-week institute will be offered July 8-28, 2018.
