School Trip

I will be incommunicado until Monday, as I am accompanying our juniors on their grade-level trip.  We are traveling through Montgomery and Selma, Alabama to learn about the Civil Rights Movement.  We will travel north to Memphis to learn about the Blues, visit Beale Street, and see Graceland.  I have been looking forward to this trip, and I’m really excited.  I’ll tell you all about it when I return.

One thought on “School Trip”

  1. Oh man, I am so glad to hear people teaching respect for the civil rights movement. There has been such a 20 year backlash against blacks it depresses me.

    Sitting with a white texan and a black new yorker last night over beers, we came to the agreement that Northern White smugness over how cool we liberals are up here, how supposedly enlightened with the race question is totally asinine, that there is not more racial enlightenment in the north and hence nothing to be smug about.
