Phoenix Cobb, sophomore, psychology major: I’m an African and African American Studies minor. I wanted to go on the trip because last year I took the Intro to Black America class and learned a lot about the civil rights movement. I wanted to see some of the places where it happened. As we visit each place, I can add to the discussion because of the class. For instance, when we talked about Viola Liuzzo, I knew why we have so much information about the event. The KKK thought they killed everyone in the car but one person was actually alive. He only had a concussion and later he testified against the murderers.
