Schoolnik Visiting Important Civil Rights Sites: The Value of Being There
Reading about places where significant civil rights events have taken place is different than actually being in those places. Schoolnik visiting the places on this page supports this notion. There is something unique about being able to walk on sidewalks that our nation’s forefathers and foremothers have walked. There is something awesome about breathing in the air in small towns, big cities, and hard-to-find country boroughs where the collective conscience of America at one time could be found. Because of the significant events that took place at these locations, these are places that changed the nation, and the world, forever.

The Edmund Pettus Bridge is where Bloody Sunday took place and where the Voting Rights March of 1963 began. While the march began at the Edmund Pettis Bridge, it concluded at the Alabama State Capitol. Another of these locations is the Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care, where the horrifying Tuskegee Syphilis Study took place. And, of course, the Montgomery Bus Boycott began with Rosa Parks.
