An intentionally multi-ethnic, experiential, and
transformational journey where participants learn together about our country’s
troubled racial history and the significant changes brought about by the Civil Rights
Movement. “Sankofa” is a West African word that means “go back and get it".
Through exploring and feeling the weight of our history, we can gain wisdom to
bring to our present context and accelerate racial harmony together.

TRIP DETAILS

We’ll travel together on a bus to several important sites of the Civil Rights Movement throughout the South. Documentary videos are shown as we travel and are followed by engaging discussions. We’ll lament and pray together throughout our time as we seek wisdom and courage to move forward.

 

WHERE

Past trips have begun and ended our trip at the Memphis International Airport. In addition to Memphis, sites will include cities such as Jackson, Mississippi, Selma, Montgomery, and Birmingham,
Alabama. There will be some others along the way. We generally don’t share the specific details of each stop so that we can be more fully present in each place as we travel. We will give you the names of the cities and hotels we are staying with closer to our departure.

COST

Generally, the cost for the trip is $1100/person. Hotel, meals, snacks, site tickets, and bus travel expenses are all included in the journey. Meals are covered beginning with lunch on the trip start date through dinner on the final full day of the trip. Hotel rooms will be double occupancy with someone of your same gender. Participants are responsible for air travel costs to and from st.

 

Together we can be the voices that promote healing and harmony in our cities and nation.
