The Harlem Civil Rights Day Trip explores the contributions that 1960’s Harlem made to the Civil Rights Movement. Considering all that is going on in the world today, Harlem is a great place to visit to remember the accomplishments and sacrifices of the 1960′s and examine how those times informs whats happening today.
Harlem Civil Rights Day Trip includes the following:
Walking / bus tour visiting Harlem Civil Rights Movement sights: The African Nationalist Pioneer Movement, Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building, Canaan Baptist Church and many others. Many rightfully know of Martin L. King Jr. and Malcolm X, but in addition we will sing the song of others who made huge sacrifices such as Wyatt Tee Walker, Carlos A Cooks, Jesse Gray, Queen Mother Moore, Preston Wilcox and many others. After the tour we will have lunch at an eatery that has the atmosphere that would have been present in Harlem during the Civil Rights Movement.
We want you to taste what it was like back then – get ready for some home cooked soul food.
We will end the day inside of a Harlem cultural institution or organization that was active during the Civil Rights Movement and one of it’s representatives will provide a multimedia presentation about the history of the organization.
