The past two days have just been wonderful. Currently, we are on the bus on the way to Birmingham. We spent the day today in Selma. We started the morning at the National Voting Rights museum. Then we had a driving tour of Selma where we learned all about the history of the city. After that we had a real southen lunch while foot soldier for freedom, Joanne Bland, spoke with us. After lunch, we participated in a slavery recreation and then a panel of Selma's Civil Rights leaders. A whole lot of learning packed into one day! It makes me think of the current practices happening in the US to try to keep people from voting.
