For the second straight year, University of Alabama students will join thousands of people from across the country on a pilgrimage to Selma, Alabama, in order to commemorate “Bloody Sunday,” one of the most significant events of the Civil Rights Movement.

The trip is sponsored by the Honors College’s 57 Miles Program. 57 Miles is a program whose mission is to give Honors students the opportunity to explore the Black Belt of Alabama through travel and service said Katherine Mauldin, a 57 Miles intern.


University of Alabama students who are going on the Selma trip will have the opportunity to participate in various activities hosted by Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee, a non-profit organization who hosts the “Bloody Sunday” commemoration each year. Activities include parades, band competitions and workshops on modern civil rights.

WHO: Students who signed up for the trip through the Honors College newsletter

WHAT: Honors College students are taking a trip to Selma to participate in events commemorating “Bloody Sunday.”

WHEN: Students going on the trip will leave for Selma on Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 a.m.

WHERE: The various events will be taking place throughout Selma, Alabama

WHY: “This trip gives students the opportunity to explore the state of Alabama and learn about the diversity of culture, politics, and history in the Black Belt of Alabama,” Mauldin said. “Students will learn about the civil rights history of the state of Alabama and the role of the Black Belt in past and current state and national politics.”
