Background Content and Resources
In the weeks leading up to our trip, we curated a number of articles, videos, and other materials to help us better understand and appreciate the context of our trip – background on Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI); information about the founding of the Memorial for Peace & Justice; historical information about slavery and racial terror the South; personal stories about the legacy and the generational impact of lynching; and more.
These resources were sent to our guests via email on a weekly basis leading up to our departure, with a final message that included a compilation of all of these messages. We invite you to consider something similar to help your guests prepare and set intentions for this profound experience.
