9 QU students travel to Alabama on a Civil Rights Trip. They will interact with those who played a role in the Civil Rights movement.
The Office of Multicultural and Leadership Programs will take 9 QU students and 4 QU staff to Alabama (Selma, Montgomery and Birmingham) on a Civil Rights Trip. The trip will allow students to interact first-hand with those who played a role in the Civil Rights movement and hear of their stories. Students will visit with Ms. Joanne Bland (Selma), Mr. Jake Williams (Montgomery) and Ms. Carolyn McKinstry (Birmingham). "Textbooks provide great foundational insight to history, but when you have the opportunity to engage with those who actively had a hand in creating history and can give actual recounts of events, you can't pass that opportunity up," said Natasha Ramsey, Director of Multicultural and Leadership Program. The group will leave the evening of January 11 and will return January 15.
