Description


Join ABWA as we celebrate Black History Month at the Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama.
On Saturday, February 23rd, we will first visit The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration which is an 11,000-square-foot museum built on the site of a former warehouse where enslaved black people were imprisoned. During this self-guided tour, we will experience rarely seen first-person accounts of the domestic slave trade, exhibits on lynching and recently composed content on segregation and much more.

Next we will visit The Memorial for Peace and Justice. During this tour we will take a journey from slavery, through lynching and racial terror, with text, narrative, and monuments to the lynching victims in America. The memorial journey ends with contemporary issues of police violence and racially biased criminal justice expressed in a final work created by Hank Willis Thomas.

We will round off our Saturday evening with a pre-fix style dinner at a notable Montgomery restaurant.

The total price for this trip: $55 for adults and $45 for children. This price includes entry into the museum, the memorial and dinner. The price does NOT include flight or hotel accommodations. Please find the recommended hotel selections and pricing below.

We look forward to seeing all of you and experiencing this journey into our history together!
