Alternative Summer Break 2002
Civil Rights and Service
From May 11-18, 2002, eight students and two staff members from the University of Vermont explored the Civil Rights Movement in Georgia and Alabama, while discussing the issues of race, diversity, and privilege.

Along the way, the group volunteered with Project Open Hand in Atlanta and the Urban Ministry in Birmingham, in a new type of alternative break trip that combined education and service.

Some of the civil rights sites visited were:
  • Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery, Alabama
  • Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama
  • Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham, Alabama
  • Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site in Atlanta, Georgia
