The University of Alabama’s Beyond Bama team was excited to have been able to partner with the Freedom Foundation (now Something New!) this October for their Fall Alternative Break! With enthusiasm and openness, twelve incredible young women took on everything from manual labor to nonviolence education.
The Foundation welcomed us with open arms, and encouraged us to challenge our preconceptions about civil rights, justice, and democracy. Students left feeling inspired and empowered. As one volunteer wrote, “While I may not have been able to change Selma in four days, I know that Selma definitely changed me.”
