That’s how many emerging leaders from Southeast Asia came to Nashville to visit the Civil Rights Room on March 1, 2016. These future leaders came in the form of exceptional students as part of a six-weeks-long trip to the States for the purpose of exploring American human and civil rights initiatives.
The trip was sponsored by Kennesaw State University as part of a State Department, grant-funded program entitled “Advancing International Civil and Human Rights through Civic Engagement.”
The purpose of this program is simple: to examine civil and human rights through the lens of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. This includes having intellectual and practical community engagement through volunteer service, as well as leadership and ethics training.
