By popular demand, we’re organizing another Civil Rights Journey to Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham.

The Racial Justice Initiative’s exploration of the Civil Rights Movement, and particularly the Jewish community’s responses (then and now), continues with a journey to Atlanta, Montgomery, Birmingham and Selma. Our trip includes visits to the Rosa Parks Museum, Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and 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.

Racism is an insidious issue that continues to be manifested in US society some 50+ years post the Civil Rights marches and historic legislation. This tour of Southern landmarks, discussions with people who participated in marches with Dr. King, and visits to museums like the Equal Justice Initiative Legacy Museum will deepen our understanding of the past and the ongoing struggles today.

TBE’s Racial Justice Initiative seeks to increase our understanding and activism to address ongoing discrimination and inequality.
