Upper School Dean of Students Traci Wright and Alumni of the Civil Rights Trip Remember Rep. John Lewis with WBAL

Upper School Dean of Students Traci Wright has led over 600 students from Park and Baltimore City Public Schools on an annual trip though the south to study the Civil Rights Movement. Before the group set out each year, they always spent a day with Rep. John Lewis at his Washington office.

“He was always open and gracious in meeting all the students,” Wright said. “We would be in his office, crowded in his tiny office. It was like a museum, and he would have a chair…But he would never sit in the chair because he wouldn’t sit if everyone did not have a chair, if everyone did not have a space to sit, and that’s how he lived his life.” –Traci and alumni of the trip spoke with WBAL about their experiences.
