Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Week Trip to Selma

January 21, 2019 @ 7:00 am

Auburn University’s Black Student Union and Alternate Student Breaks organizations are heading to Selma\, Alabama\, for a day of service. Students will volunteer at designated sites including SABRA Sanctuary\, Selma Area Food Bank and a housing project. After volunteering\, students will take tours around downtown to learn more about the rich civil rights history that occurred in Selma\, with a stop at Selma’s Interpretive Center where they will have the opportunity to take a literacy test that African Americans were formerly forced to take to be able to vote. At the end of the day\, the student group will march Edmund Pettus Bridge in remembrance and honor of those who fought for people’s rights to vote.
