DESTINATION DIVERSITY

Last year the Civil Rights Museum on Wheels (CRMOW) went on the inaugural run of "Destination Diversity".The goal of Destination Diversity is to educate and enlighten; inspire and instill a belief that our nation's diversity is an asset to be understood and celebrated. Throughout the spring and summer of 2016 this fully operational 1950s era transit bus (click here to learn more about the CRMOW) used its advanced digital and communications technology to offer presentations and facilitate conversations centering around race and civil rights. By the time its 2016 journey was finished, the CRMOW had traveled over a thousand miles, stopping at schools, parks, malls, national and local museums, and city halls across this nation. At each stop along the way (sometimes with guest speakers getting on board as well) the CRMOW provided citizens (young and old) with the opportunity to explore America's powerful civil and human rights history. We are planning Destination Diversity II for the spring and summer 2017. If your organization is interested in the CRMOW making a stop in your community, call the CFSCHRL at (585) 271-6780.
