OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Students and young adults will again be able to take the Black Votes Matter Black History Tour after COVID-19 forced organizers to cancel last year’s event.
For the past few summers, Preston Love Jr. has taken dozens of young people on a tour of southern states to lean about Black history and the Civil Rights Movement.
This year, young people will travel south to visit civil rights landmarks and discuss the stories of civil rights leaders, some with local connections. The tour is set from July 11-18.
Love said the tour helps area youth better understand Black history and the Civil Rights Movement.
