A visit with 3 people connected with UWEC's alternative spring break trip, the Civil Rights Pilgrimage. Kiersten Bauer has been a student participant in the pilgrimage twice. Jodi Thesing-Ritter is UW-EC Associate Dean of Students and teacher of Women's Studies, and she is the founder of the pilgrimage in 2008, and Bluegold Beginnings more recently. Joanne Bland was a child participant of the Selma march which included Blood Sunday and she is still a civil and human rights activist, sharing the stories via Journeys for the Soul.

Check out the Selma-Eau Claire Exchange, Friends of the Selma-Montgomery Trail, and a video of a song by Two Worlds "I Will Dance" for a documentary about Selma.
