BOSTON, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand Circle Travel is offering a civil rights tour to travelers interested in understanding pivotal moments from the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. The company’s Let Freedom Ring: A Civil Rights Journey is an 11-day itinerary with departures available September through November 2020.

Travelers will trace the steps of America’s early civil rights heroes on an emotional journey through Mississippi and Alabama, brought to life by the guidance of local people who witnessed and participated in the historic events at Selma, Montgomery, Birmingham, and other historic civil rights locales.

A portion of the proceeds from this journey will be donated to the Equal Justice Initiative, an Alabama-based non-profit organization dedicated to documenting the history of racial injustice in America, and dismantling its impact on the nation today.

Let Freedom Ring: A Civil Rights Journey – 11 days from $2,595 per person (airfare not included); free single supplements.

Highlights of the trip include:

“This Civil Rights tour has changed my life,” said traveler Clare Chapman, of Boulder, Colorado, who participated in an initial Grand Circle trip. “These lessons from our U.S. history are essential for every American to learn. This trip is a must for all of us.”

The trip will celebrate African-American culture through its soulful food, music, and art. Along the way, travelers will meet with fellow Americans from all walks of life who continue to fight for equal rights for all people today.
