Civil Rights Movement and Anti-Racism Resources
These resources, Reading, Films, Links, and the Civil Rights Timeline, have been carefully selected by the Living Legacy Pilgrimage Planning Team to provide you with vivid accounts of the people, the places, and the events that made the civil rights movement what it was. We know you probably won't have time to get to all of them, but we hope you'll experience enough of them, so that the Pilgrimage comes a live for you. We will be viewing several of the films (or clips from the films) in the driving stretches along the way.
We recommend you purchase a copy of Weary Feet, Rested Souls by Townsend Davis to carry with you on the journey.
Arranged by location, Weary Feet, Rested Souls describes each place we will visit, including maps, Civil Rights history, photos and quotes. Provides a good preliminary review of the significance of each site, and a good tool for remembering the sites and telling others about them back home. We will be telling you which pages describe each day’s itinerary.
