African-American History and Culture

This tour is a one-week sweep through the American South. Students will ponder the struggles, celebrate the achievements, and witness the South’s historic and dynamic African-American communities. We will visit celebrated cities as well as sleepy towns, drive down tree-lined highways and visit former plantations; all the while students will have the opportunity to explore and honor the lives of the African-Americans, bonded and free, whose labor, resilience, and artistry shaped the American South.
