March 1 deadline for major teacher institute on Civil Rights Movement

Deadline for applications for teachers from around the country for Alabama Humanities Foundation’s “Stony the Road We Trod…”: Exploring Alabama’s Civil Rights Legacy is March 1. Applications must be postmarked by that date.

This three-week institute offers a unique opportunity for teachers to participate in an in-depth, intensive study of the Modern Civil Rights Movement and the pivotal role that Alabama played in making the promises of the US Constitution a greater reality for more Americans. 

Teachers will trace the role of protest in American history as a tool used to obtain civil liberties and civil rights by examining the powerful part Alabama played in that movement.

Birmingham will serve as the host city for the institute which includes field study in Selma, Montgomery and Tuskegee – all key “battleground” sites in the struggle for civil rights.

More than 1,300 educators from 45 states and five foreign countries have journeyed to Alabama to experience this moving and insightful institute.

Learn more about Stony the Road online on our website dedicated specifically to the institute made possible through a grant from National Endowment for the Humanities.
