Program Overview:

Join fellow Women's Connection members as you journey south into the heart of the civil rights movement to gain a deeper understanding of the historic and continued struggle for racial equality in the United States.  Follow in the footsteps of the venerable Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legendary marches, and hear the moving story of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott.  Walk across the Selma Bridge with an activist who took part in the peaceful protest that devolved into unforgivable violence known as “Bloody Sunday.”  Pay homage at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church as you learn the story of the victims of the 1963 KKK bombing.  Study how these catalysts ignited a movement that would define this pivotal moment in American history, and discuss how they echo through the racial climate in America today.

* Registration Fee:  In order for Women’s Connection to secure this private tour, we are responsible for guaranteeing a minimum of 18 participants and a maximum of 24. If we fall below 18, Road Scholar will charge us $200/person below the minimum.

Therefore, we are requiring a $200 fully refundable deposit for all those who follow through and attend the tour. You will receive a refund check once the trip has begun. If you need to cancel before the trip and there is another person able to take your place, you will also receive a refund check. If you cancel and we fall below the 18 minimum, you will lose the $200 deposit.

This policy will help ensure we have a big enough group to keep this private, and to fairly manage the tour for everyone.
