ABOUT: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF DR. KING offers a unique
opportunity for students to travel to major sites of the civil rights
movement. Students will learn under the direction of educators who worked
with the great civil rights through the historic landscape of the movement.
The program—scheduled during the week of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day—
features highlights of Dr. King’s quest for racial equality and justice.
This program seeks to provide students with the knowledge and skills
needed to combat bigotry and intolerance in today’s society. As many people
know, Queens College students were active in the civil rights movement, and
they were not alone: All over the country, young people mobilized to end
segregation and combat racial injustice. Students played a key role in the
1960s as they joined marches, sit-ins, boycotts, voter registration drives,
and other forms of nonviolent protest and organizing.
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF DR. KING allows students to connect with that
struggle in meaningful ways. They will meet civil rights leaders and explore
modern-day impacts of the civil rights movement.
As a condition of joining In the Footsteps students
will be expected to record their experiences through video, photography, and
writing, and, upon their return to campus, to share what they have learned
with a broader audience.
Our next trip is planned to take place during MLK Week, Sunday through
Thursday, Jan 14, 2018 - Jan 18, 2018.
