The Living Legacy Project’s mission is to provide experiential education about the American Civil Rights Movement that challenges, inspires and equips people from all backgrounds for justice work in their communities and beyond. Since its founding, the Living Legacy Project (LLP) enacted its mission by taking people on Civil Rights Pilgrimages through the South meeting with Movement veterans and learning firsthand about the struggles that occurred there.
In the late winter of 2020, the pandemic temporarily halted these Pilgrimages, challenging the LLP find new ways to do its work. From May through October of last year, the Project offered a monthly online series focused on voting rights. Voting Rights: The Struggle Continues. In this series, we explored what we can learn from the Voting Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s to apply to challenges we face today in these unprecedented times.
With the overwhelming success of this series, LLP is offering two new series in 2021, a speaker and a music series, under one roof, called 2021 Virtual Journeys: Two Routes to Inspiration and Action.
Because music was a critical part of the Civil Rights Movement and continues to be important to the work for civil rights and social justice today, we’ll begin our speaker and music series with a combined offering on Sunday, January 24, 2021, at 5:30-6:30 pm Eastern, Celebrate! The Music of the Civil Rights Movement.
We'll then split off on two interconnected journeys for the remaining programs to highlight the stories and the songs of the Movement.
Attend any or all to be inspired and supported in your ongoing work for civil rights.
Living Legacy Project, Inc. is now a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization!
