Information Session: Civil Rights Journey to Atlanta, Montgomery, Birmingham & Selma

TBE travelers on the Civil Rights Journey stand in front of the Edmund Pettus Bridge
In 2019, the Racial Justice Initiative sponsored TBE’s first Civil Rights Journey  to explore not only the poignant history of the Civil Rights Movement but also the continuing legacy of slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, and mass incarceration today. Unanimously described as a transformative experience by the 120 congregants who have traveled together since 2019, TBE will be offering two trips this November—the first for adults and the following weekend, an intergenerational trip (8th grade and up!). The trips will include visits to the Rosa Parks Museum, the Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and the Lynching Memorial, The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, and the King Center among other highlights. We will attend Shabbat services at Montgomery’s Temple Beth Or, and Sunday morning services at MLK’s Ebenezer Baptist Church.
