“Stony the Road We Trod…”: Exploring Alabama’s Civil Rights Legacy

A three-week institute for 30 school teachers on the history and legacy of the civil rights movement in Alabama.

“Stony the Road...” connects the Modern Civil Rights Movement to other key events in U.S. history and examines how these events forced the nation to wrestle with issues of race and citizenship. Summer scholars examine how strategies to address segregation and discrimination in Alabama differed from one place and time to another. Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth, mastermind of the Birmingham campaign, attacked segregation on all fronts: from the back of the bus to the front of the voting booth. From Birmingham to Selma, Montgomery, and Tuskegee, teachers take a journey together to reconcile knowledge of this era with facts, memory, history, and myths. In addition to the provided books, participants will have access to related documents, bibliographies, songs, poetry, curricular products developed by previous participants, and other instructional tools.

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

A three-week institute for 30 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 7-27, 2019.
