RELS 275B: Religion and the Civil Rights Movement, a summer term travel course (1 Unit)

This is a Summer 2 course with the travel portion occurring between June 20-26. The course is an introduction to the role that religion played in the U.S. Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s. In conjunction with students from Stetson’s College of Law, students will travel to six cities where they will visit museums, institutes, centers, universities, and historic places identified with the Civil Rights Movement and the legal history of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Students will also meet and talk with members of the movement who are still alive, hearing their stories first-hand.
