Bet Am Shalom Civil Rights Journey March 2020

Join other Bet Am Shalom members as we 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. Participants will walk away understanding why Jews, as a people who have known oppression, must care and act when others are oppressed.

The journey will include Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma and Birmingham. Visits include the site where Leo Frank was lynched, the Rosa Parks Museum, the Martin Luther King Center/Auburn Avenue district, Ebenezer Church, the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the Equal Justice Initiative, Freedom Park and Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and The Fair Fight 2020 organization.
