Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers on the history and legacy of the Civil Rights movement in Alabama.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute requests support for a Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for Teachers titled " 'Stony the Road We Trod': Alabama's Role in the Modern Civil Rights Movement." The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) will serve as the lead institution for a series of one-week scholarly presentations including experiential field studies at civil rights landmarks in Birmingham, Selma, Montgomery, and Tuskegee, Alabama. Teachers selected to take part in this interactive workshop experience will participate in lectures by scholars, meet and interact with iconic leaders and foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement, travel to important civil rights sites as well as sites dedicated to the preservation of civil rights history, review archival film footage and primary sources and use national history standards (or their own state standards) to develop curricular products.
