Teachers from across U.S. visit Selma

(July 16, 2019)

Thirty teachers from all across the country traveled to Selma on Monday to explore the rich history of the Civil Rights movement Monday.

The congregation of educators retraced and researched the footsteps of Civil Rights leaders as part of a national institute entitled “‘Stony the Road We Trod…’ Exploring Alabama’s Civil Rights Legacy”.

The program was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in partnership with Alabama Humanities Foundation, allows teachers the opportunity to interact with Civil Rights leaders and see prominent locations that they may have only read about in books.
