Every March, we commemorate the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March and achievements of those that prepared the way for us. We celebrate the lives of Dr. King, John Lewis and countless others that braved the walk over the Edmund Pettis Bridge in pursuit of equal rights. For 50 years, we have faced the truth but failed to effectively engage our children in meaningful CONVERSE-SATION leading to Reconciliation.

In many ways, we have stopped making progress toward true racial equality; instead we look at small achievements on the Road to Racial Justice and we think we've reached our destination, when in fact we have more road to traverse. Honoring those who have walked before us is important, but it's even more urgent that we make a commitment to creating a just and equitable world that benefits us all. To do that, it requires a CONVERSE-SATION on Truth and Reconciliation we must engage our youth in meaningful and honest dialogue to continue this movement.

MARCH 5-8, 2015, I AM MORE THAN... organized a 3-day tour hosting students from around the country to in engage participants in meaningful Conversation of Truth and Reconciliation to heal the wounds of racism, bias and intolerance. The conversation begins with a "HOOPS AND DREAMS UNITY GAME" AT CARVER HIGH SCHOOL .

 WITH THE LEGENDARY GLOBETROTTERS. LARRY "GATOR" RIVERS will speak about the globetrotters history and their contribution to the civil rights movementThe conversation continues on FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2015 9AM - 11AM with 1,200 middle school students at the Davis Theatre. We'll engage students in conflict and resolution workshops, performing arts pieces depicting the impact of the Selma to Montgomery March and we'll discuss how Truth and Reconciliation played a role in the movement and the challenges we're facing today. We'll explore conflict and resolution through critical thinking workshops and discover the Ism's through thought provoking group discussions with internationally known activists.Students are encouraged to address racism, current issues affecting our communities, social media's influence on continuing a legacy of dehumanization and marginalization. We'll explore meaningful and effective ways to address these issues and challenge students to become TRUTH KEEPERS in their community and schools. Visiting students will tour historical sites in Montgomery and in Selma. Each day will end in self reflection and reconciliation exercises with guest host and speakers. The tour will end with a commitment to continue the conversation of Truth leading to Reconciliation and self reflection. Participants will leave holistically empowered to use critical thinking, conflict resolution and the arts as a catalyst for change.
