NOSC 2012
Post-Conference Field Trip Information

Civil Rights Tour to Selma, Alabama
Wednesday, October 3rd, 1:00-8:00pm ($65.00)

NOSC 2012 — hosted by The University of Alabama — offers participants the unique opportunity to visit sites that made civil rights history. If you sign up, you will visit Brown Chapel AME Church and First Baptist Church in Selma, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., visited during the movement. They will also visit the National Voting Rights Museum in downtown Selma and end the tour by walking across Edmund Pettus Bridge, where “Bloody Sunday” took place, an event re-enacted every year on the anniversary of the event that took place on March 7, 1965.

Black Belt Partnerships: Auburn Rural Studio Tour, Safe House, and Pie Lab

Wednesday, October 3rd, 1:00-8:00pm ($65.00) - ITINERARY

Participants in NOSC 2012 have a second fieldtrip option from which to choose. This tour includes several Auburn Rural Studio projects, as well as the Safe House Museum and Pie Lab. The Rural Studio, in Greensboro, about 40 minutes from the University, is a design-and-build program of the Auburn University School of Architecture that teaches students social responsibility while providing sound business and living structures for poor communities. The Safe House Museum is situated in a small house once used to conceal Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while he was organizing peaceful protests in west Alabama. The Pie Lab is a restaurant that serves, yes, pies made from fresh ingredients but is also a complete restaurant. What makes the Pie Lab distinctive is its purpose: a place for people to engage in conversation centering on engagement and social justice.
