Beloved Community Tour

Exploring Civil Rights Struggles, Past and Present, in the South

20-25 June 2020

Because of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to cancel the 2020 tour. Please continue to read about it and share your interest with Anthony so you can be included for 2021!

This six-day/five-night experience is open to individuals within and beyond the CFS community, including educators in schools and colleges as well as members of Friends meetings and other interested adults.

Experience civil rights history in Atlanta, Tuskegee, Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham; explore contemporary issues of race in our country; and meet change-agents working to make a difference.

On our comfortable charter bus, enjoy music of the movement, see documentaries and film clips, and learn from our experienced tour leaders (a long-time historian and an award-winning film-maker).

Be educated. Be challenged. Be inspired. By where we go, what we learn, whom we encounter--and by your fellow travelers.

Here's a one-page flyer you can share with a friend.

Questions? Please email Anthony and Ruthie at ExtendedLearning@cfsnc.org.

We'd love to have you and a diverse group of participants "get on board" for this powerful personal and community journey.

We have some funds available to help CFS staff members' participate and, thanks to a generous CFS donor, also for educators in charter and traditional public schools as well as Quaker schools who couldn't afford to go without partial support.
