Birmingham Civil Rights Tour
June 2 - 6, 2013
Alumnus and current Alumni Board member, Frank Turner and his wife, Rosalie invited University President, Dan Jones, Alumni Director, Derryle Peace, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Counseling and Special Education, Dr. Lavelle Hendricks, and the student gospel choir, "New Beginnings" to take a trip to the Birmingham, Alabama.
Spurred by a Civil Right book written by Rosalie, the trip was designed to allow students the opportunity to experience, retrace-the-steps of the civil rights movement and Bloody Sunday, visit MLK’s former residence and other historic buildings.
