Two emotions that I felt during this trip are : enjoyment and surprised. I was surprised at the amount of "foot soldiers" that go unnoticed in the discussion of the Civil Rights Movement. Although the monuments that we have visited have recognized and celebrated a variety of people who took part in the Civil Rights Movement, on a national scale only a handful of people are recognized. I know that every person who participated can no always be listed however I feel as if our textbooks and class settings should do a better job at recognizing that this movement was propelled by regular people around the country. I felt enjoyment from the various people on the trip that I had a conversations with to described our feelings on the trip.
