WAB Civil Rights Tour heads home

On March 9, 26 students and 7 faculty and staff members met at the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro, N.C. to kick-off their Civil Rights Bus Tour part of Wake Alternative Breaks.  For one week, this group traveled throughout the southern United States completing meaningful service projects and meeting distinguished guest speakers while deep-diving into learning about racism, socioeconomic disparities and how the Civil Rights Movement serves as a catalyst for evolving social movements today, including LGBT communities and immigrant populations.

The group stopped in Montgomery, AL, Selma, Al, Birmingham, AL, Oxford, MS, and Memphis, TN.
