Trip Details

Visit iconic yet complicated Southern cities (New Orleans, Selma, Tuskegee, Savannah and Charleston), where millions of enslaved people first entered the United States, yet where African diaspora culture, instead of being totally eradicated or homogenized, was heroically preserved by former slaves and thrives today in music, food, religious and artistic traditions.  Meet foot-soldiers of the 1960’s Civil Rights movement, courageous heroes that helped to desegregate schools, fight oppression, preserve priceless traditions, and destroy the stranglehold of Jim Crow.

Our fall 2024 departure will be lead by Robin D. Perry. Robin founded his law firm, the Law Offices of Robin D. Perry & Associates in 1998, which handles numerous high profile civil and criminal matters. He lectures at seminars including the firm sponsored Summer Seminar Series, has spoken to low-income students at Long Beach Unified Schools and has served as a mentor for an underprivileged youth.  He also created the Moot Court Project with the 100 Black Men of Long Beach. The Project introduces low-income students to develop legal research, writing and persuasive advocacy skills.
