Oct 19-23, 2022 Pilgrimage! Registration will open soon!
Yes, COVID-permitting, we'll be back on the bus October 19-23, 2022! We plan to gather in Memphis, TN, where we'll visit the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel. We'll then travel down the Mississippi Delta where we'll stop in Sunflower County where Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer rose from sharecropping to demanding equity at the Democratic National Convention.
We'll pay our respects to 14-year-old Emmett Till at the ruins of Bryant's Store in Money and at the E.T.H.I.C. Museum, a living museum housed in a former cotton gin and dedicated to educating "about the past atrocities in hopes of making a brighter future."
We'll then travel on to Jackson, Mississippi and other key Mississippi sites to learn more heart-wrenching and inspirational stories of the Civil Rights Movement, including Freedom Summer.
We expect the October 2022 Pilgrimage to fill up quickly. If you're interested in participating, we invite you to join a special mailing list, which will give you early access to registration before it opens to the public.
If you already know that you are not able to travel in October 2022, we'd still appreciate knowing about your interest in a future Pilgrimage. This will help us gauge demand so we can effectively plan for 2023 and beyond. Thank you!

2021 Year in Review
We're proud of our accomplishments this year and hope you'll take the time to read the LLP's 2021 Year in Review.
As we outlined the content for our 2021 Year in Review, we found it hard to believe that so much had happened in a year! Even though it was a year without in-person pilgrimages, we managed to engage more people than ever before through virtual programming. We held ten webinars on inspirational and important topics from the music of civil rights and social protest to Critical Race Theory.
