Nexus History of Civil Rights: A Powerful Experience


A group of our Upper School Students recently participated in the NEXUS History of Civil Rights program in Georgia and Alabama from March 20-24.

This journey to the South allowed them to explore a sampling of the landmarks that played an integral role in the Civil Rights Movement in the United States during the 1950’s and 1960’s. During this 5-day program, students had the opportunity to visit the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park, take a guided tour of Selma culminating in a walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and visit the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, as well as additional sites in Atlanta, Selma and Montgomery.

Check out their reflections on the experience:
