I really enjoyed our time in Tuskegee. The campus was beautiful and had a rich history to it. In the morning I enjoyed Dr.LaFayette's talk which allowed us to see very briefly into his own experiences during the civil rights movement. It was incredible to hear how his involvement then influenced his decisions later to continue to fight for civil rights in the u.s and around the world. He has and will always be dedicated to the tactics of nonviolence. However, I do think we should talk about tactics outside of this one that other people have used. Revolutions/movements come in various shapes and forms and should be given the same validity and other movements we honor. Talking with attorney Fred Gray was also incredible! Being in the same room was unbelievable! He will have a long lasting legacy within the movement. We are now in Montgomery, let's see how it goes!
