Reflections on the Trip

kodah

Kodah Mohamaud, senior biochemistry major: I’ve learned an incredible amount of knowledge on this trip that I would never have been been able to learn about Civil Rights movement. I lived in Minnesota except for a short time when I went back to Kenya. I had to memorize facts like the Brown vs Board of Education case and the Rodney King case, but that was only facts. It was amazing to hear the personal stories and see the physical evidence of history. It was amazing to be in the house of Jefferson Davis because now I know what he stands for. We need to learn the ideology of the people on both sides of history and even the stories of the slaves that built their houses and cooked their food.
