CBST Civil Rights Journey March 2019

 Registration is closed for this event

Email Tasha at tcalhoun@cbst.org to be placed on the waiting list for this trip.

We are delighted to announce that Rabbi Kleinbaum will be leading a CBST trip to visit some of the most iconic civil rights sites in the South. We will explore what it means as Jews to understand the history and culture of the movement to gain civil rights for African-Americans. What was the role of the Jewish community? What does the history of that movement teach us for today? What are the legacies of the struggles to defeat Jim Crow in today's America?

Among the sites we will visit and discuss:  MLK's birthplace and church in Atlanta, and the site of his assassination in Memphis. We will explore the center of the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the role of Rosa Parks. We will study the struggle in Selma and walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge.  We will be in the park where police used fire hoses against protestors and stand in prayer at the Church where four young girls were killed in a bombing in Birmingham, Alabama. We will meet activists from then and now and deeply engage with history at a moment in time fraught with its shadows. We will visit the new Lynching Memorial and the Southern Poverty Law Center. 

This will be a fascinating, stimulating and moving experience.  

Contact Nancy at programs@cbst.org for full details, and with any questions or concerns.
