Travel the back roads of iconic Alabama and talk with activists on the forefront of the movement for civil and environmental justice – both past and present.  Explore the history of the civil rights movement and the legacy of injustice that we all live with today.  As we meet activists, watch films, visit museums/memorials, and talk with locals on streets and in cafes, we will come to a rich understanding of root causes and innovative solutions to inequality.  We'll then spend 4 days at an idyllic Alabama beach house unpacking/analyzing our experiences and creating dynamic blogs, videos/slide shows, and artistic journals.
