American South

The Civil Rights Pilgrimage begins

On this eight-day bus journey, SMU students, faculty and staff visit the American South’s civil rights landmarks and meet people who participated in and witnessed the movement. They will be joining thousands from around the world who are marching across Edmund Pettus Bridge from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. The trip is sponsored by the SMU Chaplain’s Office and led by Dennis Simon, Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor of political science, and Ray Jordan.
