BK Trip to Montgomery, AL

Facing the History of Racial Injustice in the US

How does knowing and thinking about the narratives of history we have available impact our ability to make sense of and act in the present?[1]

More than 4,000 African Americans were publicly murdered in the U.S. between 1877 and 1950. Inspired by the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin and the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, The National Memorial for Peace and Justice is dedicated to those victims of white supremacy. 

Join us to learn about and grapple with the legacies of historical and contemporary racial injustice in the U.S. through a visit to the Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice, and pre/post trip educational events, including a civil rights and truth and reconciliation-focused tour led by
More than Tours, a local organization “founded out of necessity to expose students and mature travelers to Alabama’s rich history.”

The trip will be an opportunity to honor the memories of those who perished and to renew our commitment as Jews to working for justice and to uproot tyranny.
