Today Jack is starting out on his trip through the South with Aunt Jen, Uncle Dan, Hannah and a friend of Hannah's. On the first leg they'll be heading from St. Louis to Memphis. Jack's final destination is Nashville, and I think Jen, Dan, Hannah and her friend are going to keep going all the way to Atlanta before heading back to St. Louis.
Along the way they are visiting important civil rights history sights, like Montgomery, Alabama, where Rosa Parks didn't move to the back of the bus she was riding, and the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where black people who were marching for their civil rights were attacked by police.
There is a new thing called My Maps on Google which I will use to show you their progress.
