I was jailed along with other students numerous times for protesting the unjust laws of segregation. I have done educational tours on the Voting Rights Struggle for over 20 years. I now reside in Selma, Alabama, and conduct tours that revisit this troubling time in our Nation's history.
A Recent Review of this guide
Joanne proved to be extremely knowledgeable, easy-going and flexible. I took the tour with my 12-year-old son and was concerned the time would drag and/or we would become overloaded. It did not happen. Joanne sprinkled in a potpourrie of personal anecdotes, historical events and pointed questions along the lines of, "well, what do *you* think about that?" The time flew by and my son is still talking about what he learned. This tour truly captures the feeling of being shown around by a local.
