Fifty years ago, when America’s Freedom Movement was challenging segregation in the South, black and white young people got on buses and rode South together to join the struggle. Their being together was itself a challenge to the system. Half a century later, School for Conversion is inviting a diverse group of Americans to get on the bus together again and travel from Durham, NC, to Nashville, TN, December 14-18, 2013, to dream together about the America that doesn’t yet exist and to ask how we can work together to bring it about. As we travel, we will be mentored by veterans of the Southern Freedom Struggle. Drawing on their wisdom, our conversations will focus on contemporary justice struggles, paying particular attention to mass incarceration and detention/deportation - what many call the New Jim Crow/Juan Crow system. We invite you to immerse yourself in historic and contemporary struggles for justice, to expand your view of the Beloved Community and to deepen the inner resources needed for your life’s work.
