Forty years post the Civil Rights Movement, the struggle for equity throughout the system remains. As veteran leaders of the movement age, it is clearly our responsibility to insure that the vigilance continues. Sojourn to the Past is one such tool. Through a ten day journey that immerses and personalizes for students the historical dynamics of dominance, the politics of difference, and the courage of those who rose to the challenge, students learn the history of the Civil Rights Movement while they examine present day systems, individual behavior, language and thoughts that perpetuate racism and discrimination.
