Thirty students from the Black Student Unions at Highland and Albuquerque high schools recently went on the Civil Rights Movement Tour. They were accompanied by Albuquerque High sponsor Jackie Cole, Highland High sponsor Stacy Washington, BSU director Joycelyn Jackson and chaperons Tristen Baker and Calesia Cole. Students took photos and kept a journal with their reflections on each of the sites visited.

The group traveled to eight locations of the Civil Rights Movement including Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., where they met a Minnie Lee Trickey, a member of the Little Rock Nine. Other  stops on the tour included:

  • The Lorraine Motel and Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tenn., where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated
