Civil Rights Trip
For the past eleven years, students from The Park School and Baltimore City College High School embarked on a Civil Rights Trip. Three Years ago, students from City Neighbors High School joined the group. This seven-day trip enables a diverse group of students to visit historic sites and museums commemorating the civil rights movement. We visit sites in Atlanta, Birmingham, Montgomery, Memphis, Greensboro, Little Rock, New Orleans and Selma. In addition, the group meets with many civil rights leaders and activists who participated in the movement.
The trip provides a historic context for students to engage in meaningful conversations about racism, social privilege, educational inequality, and economic disparity in the United States. It also provides students from public and private schools the opportunity to share a common experience. The trip's function is to empower students to return to Baltimore more committed to fighting for equality and social justice. With the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board as our compass, we intend to examine the state of public education and create ways to advocate for equitable opportunities in Baltimore's schools.
