In order to develop future leaders we must connect them to the past. Appleseed Expeditions vision with this tour is to connect students to African American leaders who made a positive change and inspire them to do the same. Through a combination of historical tours and inner city community service it is our hope that students will be motivated to use their education and talents to fight for those less fortunate and make a stand for people who’s rights have been infringed upon. In the turbulent decade of the 60’s civil rights activists used nonviolent protest and civil disobedience to bring about change. The federal government made legislative headway with initiatives such as the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968. Many leaders from within the African American community and beyond rose to prominence during the Civil Rights era, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and others. They risked, and sometimes lost, their lives in the name of freedom and equality.
