Overall I think the civil rights pilgrimage was fantastic. I learned many new things about myself and civil rights. I think traveling is the best way to learn about civil rights because you hear from firsthand accounts and can actually be at these historical places. Also, I really enjoyed meeting many new people that are different from me and making new friends. The pilgrimage is a great program for anyone instersted in diversity, civil rights, and history. I'm very glad to have gone on this year on the UIUC Civil Rights Pilgrimage.
