Road Scholar
Program #20874ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

From Slave Narratives to Jazz: An American Literary Journey
Enjoy the rich artistic heritage from secret oral narratives and songs to novels, poems, and film in the African American experience in our country. Works of Frederick Douglass, Phillis Wheatley, Louis Armstrong and Sidney Poitier, among others, will enliven our journey.

Intrigue and Change in the US Supreme Court
Isolated in closed chambers, nine unelected Justices comprise the branch of our government most shrouded in mystery, misunderstanding and myth. See how the Court operates, as law, politics, and personalities collide within this inner sanctum.

Religion and the Civil Rights Movement
Look at the role religion played in the United States civil rights movement during the 1950s and 1960s. We will consider well-known and not-so-well-known leaders, some who used religion to support the movement and some who used religion to oppose it.
