Every other year Beyond the Front Porch has the honor of visiting the Epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement…Birmingham, more specifically the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. This educational field trip is always a treat for a variety of reasons, but mostly because of the fantastic Scavenger Hunt that the museum provides to help students navigate the museum. Our students worked together to answer meaningful questions about the history of the Civil Rights Movement. They watched videos, heard actual phone calls, and read transcripts of one of the most life changing, country changing, heart-wrenching periods in our history. The students learned and shared a lot and that was the point of this trip.
Thank you to our Transportation Provider Southeastern Stages, Lunch Sponsor Fruit of the Spirit Catering and Seat Sponsor Heritage Baptist Church.
See you next month as we visit the SAM Shortline Excursion Railroad.
