Southern Civil Rights Camp 2017

The Civil Rights Movement: The Pivotal Role of Young People is a five day workshop designed for middle and high-school students interested in learning about the contributions and sacrifices made by people who were their age during the Civil Rights Movement. Participants will be guided through the history of the movement via lectures, oral history panels, group and individual work. The workshop will explore the nature of American democracy and how engaged citizens can advance democratic ideals in the face of resistance and oppression.

The workshop features field trips to civil rights landmarks in Jackson, MS., and the Mississippi Delta. Students will be encouraged to participate in a service learning project.

Other benefits of the workshop include: notebook and learning materials; lunches; t-shirts; field trips; and a workshop ending program conducted by the Hamer Institute's faculty and students. Lunch will be provided daily.
