Black History Month: 10 civil rights sites to explore beyond Selma
Here’s an interesting presentation of 10 civil rights sites to explore!
USA Today ~ “The struggle for civil rights is remembered in many places: at famous sites like the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, and in lesser-known locations too, says Vernon Burton, an emeritus history professor at Clemson University. “This is where ordinary Americans changed the laws in this country with civil disobedience. I would call these places hallowed ground.” He shares some notable, but sometimes overlooked sites with Larry Bleiberg for USA TODAY” ~BILL FRAKES/AP
