Jackson, MS - Join the Institute for Educational Leadership on a Civil Rights Learning Journey across the American South. The Civil Rights Learning Journey is a professional development experience for leaders in and for education. This bus tour runs from Jackson, Mississippi to Birmingham, Alabama. Led by Civil Rights movement leader, Roscoe Jones Sr., the experience focuses on both places and stories that delve deep into the movement, lifting up the narratives that shaped the past and inform the present. As you retrace the Civil Rights Movement in the American South, you will reflect and engage in a meaningful dialogue about how to make a positive social change in your communities and organizations today.
