What is the Living Legacy Project
The Living Legacy Project grew out of the Reverend Gordon Gibson's and his wife Judy's passion for sharing the Civil Rights Movement story. Recognizing the importance of not only capturing this story, and our Unitarian Universalist role in it, but of understanding what this story teaches us about the continued work that still needs to be done, the Reverend Hope Johnson, Janice Marie Johnson, and Annette Marquis formed a partnership with Gordon and Judy, to establish the Living Legacy Project. In November of 2013, the founding members, along with singer/songwriter Reggie Harris, formed the Living Legacy Project Board, with a goal of developing long-range sustainability in service of our mission.
Today, we offer the Living Legacy Pilgrimage and other experiential learning opportunities to deepen understanding of the Civil Rights Movement by visiting the sites where it happened and talking with the people who lived it.
