During previous Higher Ground Journeys, travelers visited a variety of key civil rights destinations in the Montgomery/Selma area including The Memorial for Peace and Justice, The Legacy Museum, The Rosa Parks Museum, The National Voting Rights Museum and Institute, The Freedom Riders Museum, and the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
Special guests such as historian Tim Tyson and North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green have joined us on previous trips, providing the opportunity for learning, deep conversations, and individual reflection. A performance by Mike Wiley is also scheduled during the trip.
While the pandemic put the brakes on the trip planned for 2020, upcoming trips will move forward as soon as it’s safe to travel together again. If you’re interested in learning more about our trips, please click here and complete the form to be added to the information list.
