Sojourn Project is nationally recognized for our academic, living-history immersion Journeys, and for our dedication to universal civil rights, human rights, and positive social action.
We’re connecting students, families, and educators to hard-to-access educational and primary source materials, museums, institutes, organizations, and leaders dedicated to the Civil Rights Movement, nonviolent social change, human rights education, and personal empowerment.

Including articles, databases, timelines, libraries, videos, speeches, photographic collections, and commentary surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and the ongoing struggle for social justice and equity, specifically related to race, gender, religion, sexuality, economics, and disability.
