June 19 to 26, 2022

Journey through four Southern states with Professor Doug McAdam to some of the most iconic sites of the 1960s civil rights movement in a program designed for families with children who are high school graduates and older.

Voices for equality. Learn side by side about the leaders and events of the civil rights movement as our group stops at churches, museums, exhibits and memorials and hears firsthand accounts from people who lived these experiences. Souls of the South. Feel the origins of soul music and the blues driving through the Mississippi Delta and touring the entertainment district in Memphis. Feast on Southern-style dishes at cafés and restaurants that civil rights activists once patronized. Looking ahead. Meet with people from all walks of life who have devoted themselves to civil rights issues and explore sites dedicated to challenging racial injustice and pointing a way toward societal healing.
