Living Legacy Pilgrimage: The Jewish Experience in the Civil Rights Movement

We’re excited to announce that registration is now open for the November 14-18, 2022, Living Legacy Pilgrimage: The Jewish Experience in the Civil Rights Movement.

In this special five-day pilgrimage, co-sponsored by the WJC, we’ll visit important sites of the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama and Mississippi. We’ll talk with Jewish leaders about the history of Jewish involvement in the fight for civil rights, we’ll meet with veterans of the Civil Rights Movement, and we’ll hear how the struggle continues today.

We will gather in Birmingham, Alabama, in the morning of November 14. We’ll then travel to Montgomery and Selma, Alabama and on to Philadelphia and Meridian, Mississippi. On the final day, we’ll travel back to Birmingham for your trip home.

The Pilgrimage will be led by singer/songwriter/storyteller Reggie Harris. Reggie will share songs and stories of the Movement and will introduce you to some of the powerful social justice music he has written for our time.
