GEAR UP Alabama
Join us for Black Belt Friday as we travel to visit GEAR UP Alabama students at Sidney Lanier High School in Montgomery, AND a visit to the new National Memorial for Peace and Justice!
Travel among students, friends and colleagues from UAB on this unique mentoring opportunity led by GEAR UP Alabama and the Atlanta based non-profit, "Let Us Make Man." This bus trip will include a brief history lesson about Montgomery County and the Black Belt Region, and a critical dialogue about the work of GUA to significantly increase the number of students from high-poverty backgrounds who attend and succeed in postsecondary college and career opportunities. Once at the school, we will host a brief assembly before breaking into small groups with the students to discuss college and career readiness. Lunch and snacks will be provided. After the activity at Lanier High School, we'll travel a few miles down the road to visit the National Memorial for Peace and Justice. Each guest will receive a souvenier from the Equal Justice Initiative.
For more information, please contact Dr. Samantha Elliott Briggs ([email protected]); Dr. Tonya Perry ([email protected]); or Miss Ashton Ray ([email protected]).
We can't wait to see you on the bus!
7:15am - 3:30pm CST
