The annual Civil Rights Bus Tour allows students, faculty, and staff to travel with community leaders and have the opportunity to walk where history was made. The tour is coordinated with the Department of History and Government and the Office of Intercultural Leadership.
We will travel to several cities including Memphis, Montgomery, Selma, and Atlanta to visit museums, churches, and historic sites related to the Civil Rights movement.
This is not just an opportunity to get away. On this trip you will:
- Broaden your perspectives on issues pertaining to race relations in America and the role of the church.
- Learn to think theologically about your experiences on the trip.
- Gain a better understanding of the relevant theological and historical issues of Civil Rights movement.
- Hear lectures and dialogue with Dr. Matt Bennett, Dr. Murray Murdoch, and Dr. John Mark Yeats (church historian and theology professor at Midwestern Seminary).
- Eat some superb food!
