Summer 2023 | Spring 2024

In June 2023, an amazing group of participants from the Triangle and as far as Virginia, Illinois, Minnesota, and Japan, ages 30 to 72, made this trip. The power of our six days together leaves us hopeful we have sufficient interest to repeat the opportunity for a new group 5-10 March 2024. Register now!

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 Friends meeting members and other curious adults.

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

As we travel, enjoy music of the movement, see documentaries and film clips, and learn from our experienced historian tour leader.

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

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

Educators, learn more about professional growth programs for you through the Institute for Teaching and Learning.

Until we reckon with history, we’re not going to be free. I think there’s something better waiting for us that we can’t get to until we talk honestly about our past.
