This February, travel down south with teens and peers from the Greater Boston community on a Civil Rights trip led by Etgar 36!
Learn about the struggles of African Americans to gain equality in the 1950s & 60s as well as discover how Jews were involved in the Civil Rights struggle. The trip will include visits to Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham. We will visit the Equal Justice Initiative Legacy Museum and Memorial to the victims of lynching, Freedom Park, the site where Leo Frank was lynched, the Rosa Parks Museum, the Martin Luther King Center/Auburn Ave. district, Ebenezer Baptist Church, walking across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and the 16th Street Baptist Church.
On this journey, the group will meet with educators, politicians, activists, artists, and musicians as well as community, business, and religious leaders to provide participants with the tools and inspiration to take the next step beyond social action.
Immerse yourself in the American history that shapes us, the issues that confront us, and how the political process impacts us all under the lens of the Civil Rights narrative.
Etgar 36 is an independent, pluralistic, nonpartisan, and nonprofit Jewish educational venture with the mission of empowering teens to get involved politically and socially in order to change the world.
