Opera aficionado, Sarah Caldwell, once said, “Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can-there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did”. That is what this trip is for me.
Any journalism student yesterday would have LOVED to have been in our shoes. I mean, we went to CNN! Everyone has been doing an awesome job representing our team. I am so excited about everything and everyone we have been so blessed to have come across. From meeting the honorable Reverend Samuel “Billy” Kyles on the first day, to visiting the Emmett Till sites, to speaking with Jerry Mitchell, to visiting the 16th Street Baptist Church, every single moment is one that I will never forget.
Shout out to Anthony Orosco, our WONDERFUL and dedicated driver, and San Jose Fireman, for all his wisdom, laughter and for blessing us with his impeccable driving skills.
Stay tuned. More to come.
Peace and Blessings,
Angela A. Hughes
