Journey along the civil rights trail

Hosted By: Noah Taborda - August 2, 2021


Selma, Memphis, Little Rock, Montgomery and Topeka: The city names alone are a roadmap of the nation’s struggle for equality in terms of voting rights, educational opportunity, and jobs. These landmark cities are also on the U.S. civil rights trail.

Joining Tim Carpenter on the Kansas Reflector podcast is Lee Sentel, Alabama’s tourism director and  author of “The Official United States Civil Rights Trail.” The 128-page guide accompanies readers to more than 120 historic sites across 14 states, including the Brown v Board of Education National Historic Site and Sumner Elementary School in Topeka.
