Bernice King (daughter of Martin Luther King Jr.) leads high school students on a Nonviolence Youth Tour to the historic Civil Rights cities of Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama to give them a "real life" history lesson. Birmingham City Councilman Jay Roberson plays host as Rev. Bernice King tours the jail cell where her father was held in Birmingham, takes a walk through Kelley Ingram Park the place where the Children's March of 1963 occurred and sits on the steps of 16 Street Baptist Church the place where four little girls lost their lives in the tragic Church Bombing of September 15, 1963.
The day camp sessions, which will be conducted at The King Center, will also include "experiential learning" field trips to Montgomery and Birmingham, Alabama, as well as team-building activities; creative presentations; non-competitive sports games; contemporary positive music; and celebrity guests. Participants in the N.O.W. (Nonviolence Opportunity Watch) Encounter include 40 young people from diverse communities, ages 13-18 in each session.
