dc.description.abstractThe Civil Rights Pilgrimage (CRP) is an immersion experience that has been offered 20 times with 1206 total participants available for study. Participants go on a ten-day pilgrimage, visiting key historical locations of the civil rights movement, touring museums, and speaking with influential foot soldiers. Anecdotally, many participants report a life-changing experience, bringing what they learned back to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and into their own lives.
