Dr. Chad Parker and Dr. D'Weston Haywood are leading a group of history students to Washington, DC to witness history in the making at a March on Washington following the inauguration of Donald Trump. This trip is for a one-credit class titled  "Protest and Remembrance in Washington DC."  The class explores the history of protest in the nation's capital throughout the 20th century. 

Students have the option to attend, participate, and/or observe the protest, however participation is voluntary. Following the march, the class will tour the National Mall and the city’s museums in order to reflect on how the city/country narrates social conflict in the American past. The class will also delve into the history of other major protests such as those surrounding women’s suffrage, veterans’ rights, workers’ rights, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War.
