That there are so many different types of BBQ.
Children and youth were very involved in the Civil Rights movement.
The Civil War battlefields covered a lot of ground.

Nicole C. Mullen sings a song called "Black Light."  It recalls and celebrates the triumphs of the civil rights movement, and her unifying lyrics encourage all of us to stand on the shoulders of giants and shine as lights in a dark world.  To celebrate each others differences and sameness.

You can listen to the You Tube video to the right, and read the lyrics here.

Eat:
A traditional Southern meal would have pan-fried chicken, field peas, greens (such as collard greens, mustard greens, or turnip greens), mashed potatoes, cornbread, sweet tea, and a dessert that is usually a pie (sweet potato, shoofly, pecan, and peach are traditional southern pies).  If you've never had southern grits - you really should try them as well.

Drink:
A lot of water.  It can be hot and humid during your tour.  Don't forget to try that southern sweet tea.

In A Word:
Struggle.
