Before the Bridge

Host institution :

Selma Voting Rights Foot Soldiers Kirk Carrington, Doris Cox and / or Gwen Carrington.
learning Objectives :
  • Explore the impact of grassroots community leaders and their effect on the Voting Rights Movement.
  • Recognize  the heroism of early civil rights leaders as they organized campaigns to abolish Jim Crow Laws.
  • Analyze  the early commitment to social justice of the Historically Black Church in light of establishment pressure to have its members remain Second Class Citizens.

details :

In this virtual field trip, students will learn from both Kirk Carrington and Tabernacle’s immersive and interactive Xplore AR platform to place them in the midst of Tabernacle Baptist Church where they will discover how church and community leaders were instrumental in laying the foundation for the signing of the Voting Rights Bill. Selma and Tabernacle Baptist Church helped the nation focus on the denial of the right to vote and  exposed  the root cause of racial segregation.


Students will also consider how Tabernacle’s lesson and the methods through which it drove change may be applied to the contemporary context.
