Thirty teachers from across the country followed historic footsteps through Alabama as part “Stony the Road We Trod…”: Exploring Alabama’s Civil Rights Legacy, made possible through a National Endowment for the Humanities grant presented in partnership with AHF.
The three-week teacher institute in July enabled teachers from California to Texas to New Jersey and a host of other states to not only study the Civil Rights Movement intensively, it gave them the opportunity to actually trace the footsteps of pivotal moments in historic places in Alabama and interact with eye-witnesses to history.
Check out a sampling of their interviews and videos, underscoring the impact of this institute led by Dr. Martha Bouyer, now known around the nation and abroad. Click any of the images to take you to the news links.
