Annual Civil Rights Trip

After much study, preparation, and fundraising, students and faculty from Park School, Baltimore City College High School, and City Neighbors High School are currently traveling through the South, visiting sites and meeting people that were – and are – important to the Civil Rights Movement.  What they experience is used as a springboard for discussion about activism and ways we can tackle current civil rights issues in Baltimore and beyond.

The trip has occurred annually since 2004. To read the ideas, thoughts, and reflections of the students from each of the schools, visit their blog:
