2018 Journey to South Africa

May 16 - 28, 2018

South Africa, for many, is a model of reconciliation. With a long and deep history of violence and oppression, post-apartheid South Africa continues the struggle for racial and economic justice. This Journey, South Africa: Race, Memorials, Reconciliation, will take us to a country of breathtaking natural beauty to explore the anti-apartheid movement and truth and reconciliation commissions. We’ll learn from leaders and activists and consider how we engage in contemporary justice movements that build sustainable peace in our own communities.

Cost: $5500 (Scholarships are available for Emory University students)
