The Struggle Towards Equality: The Civil Rights Movement Past & Present

September 23 to September 29, 2021

Deadline to register June 23, 2021

Join Aziz Abu Sarah, co-founder of MEJDI Tours, and Todd Allen, Vice President for Diversity Affairs, Professor at Messiah University, and Founder of the Common Ground Project, a community-based nonprofit dedicated to teaching and preserving the history of the Civil Rights Movement – as they take you on a journey through the “deep south.”

The Southern United States plays a leading part in the history of race relations in the country. Many here take great pride in a unique heritage marked by “southern hospitality” and industriousness. Yet, so many of the region’s contributions to American prosperity were achieved through slavery or despite legal frameworks for segregation persisting into the 1960’s. As local communities grapple with difficult lessons of the past, many issues around race remain unresolved. The struggle for Civil Rights was staged across the south, but the pursuit of justice continues across the country.

Check out the detailed tour itinerary (also located at the bottom of this page).

Check out a four minute TED talk by the founder of MEJDI in which he outlines the history and philosophy behind the company.
