Abstract: Thirty school teachers from across the country will travel to Alabama in 2018 to study the history and legacy of the civil rights movement in the state, thanks to a $185,907 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities announced this week to support the Alabama Humanities Foundation in producing a three-week institute. The institute, titled "'Stony the Road We Trod . . .': Exploring Alabama's Civil Rights Legacy," is the brainchild of veteran educator and Vice President of the Jefferson County Board of Education Martha Bouyer. Since 2002, Bouyer has directed over 20 workshops on the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama.
