Thirty teachers tour Selma as part of a Civil Rights Summer Institute

Thirty school teachers from across the country traveled to Alabama this month to study the history and legacy of the civil rights movement in the state.

On Monday, the group visited Selma.

This trip was made possible by a $185,907 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to support the Alabama Humanities Foundation (AHF) in producing a three-week Civil Rights Summer Institute.

The institute, titled “‘Stony the Road We Trod …’ Exploring Alabama’s Civil Rights Legacy” comes from Dr. Martha Bouyer, who since 2002, has directed over 20 workshops on the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama.
