“It’s that mind-heart connection that I believe compels us to not just be attentive to all the bright and dazzling things but also the dark and difficult things.” ~ Bryan Stevenson
Everyone in America is affected by race and racism. Race in America is a Learning and Listening immersion to support the understanding of this complex and provocative topic through the lens of the systems, structures and ideas that keep it alive and well.
Through lecture, discussion, and experience at historically relevant sites in Birmingham and Montgomery, AL, we will examine the institution of slavery, the Civil War and Jim Crow periods, the Civil Rights movement, and the white supremacy and black liberation movements of today.
Join Nikki Myers and Seane Corn for this 7 day immersion into Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma! Some of the sites we will visit include: the Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace & Justice, The Rosa Parks & Freedom Riders Museums, Lynch Park, the Edmund Pettus Bridge and the Lowndes Interpretive Center on our day trip to Selma, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Civil Rights Memorial, Black Lives Matter and more. We will also have some incredible guest speakers joining us.
Our daily yoga practices with Seane and Nikki will serve to integrate our experiences across our bodies, mind, energy, character and heart.
Race in America is a journey of education, inspiration, healing, and celebration that will ultimately move us closer to our individual and collective healing.
