Race & Faith Travel

Race and Faith has added educational travel experiences to our racial justice work. The rich history and powerful landmarks across the United States, enhanced by knowledgeable and engaging guides make for a transformational experience. Educational tours that explore American slavery and Black American Civil Rights will enhance your on-going commitment to racial justice and provide a platform for deeper conversations about the workings of racism in the United States and how it intersects with one’s faith.

So what is the Faith and Freedom Tour?
An intergenerational, educational tour exploring American Slavery/ Black American Civil Rights. This first experience is in Alabama. We will explore Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham.
Racism in the United States and the role Christianity and the church then and now will be the focus of this tour.
What will we do: We will visit important sites such as: The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, The Voting Rights Museum and the 16th Street Baptist Church. Visiting these sites as well as others, will aid in deepening the understanding of American slavery as well as the civil rights movement in Alabama. At the end of each day spent visiting important sites, we will debrief the day’s experience to help participants process what they have seen and heard. We will also lead a daily worship experience highlighting the role of faith in our own lives. While we recognize there are many “isms” to tackle, this trip will maintain the focus on racism and the role of the church, realizing that the lessons gained will enhance participants’ ability to recognize the ways racism is expressed in society today.

These tours are intergenerational, ages 13 &up. We encourage dialogue across the generations to better enhance understanding and strengthen our knowledge base. When we engage across generations it is dynamic and encourages our collective memory creating a more vivid picture of the past and present.
