A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. Marcus Garvey
Heritage Empowered is now the home of the Ultimate HBCU Tour and the Millennial Civil Rights Tour, two of the most admired and respected tours in their respective categories.
The Millennial Civil Rights Tour
Dr. Karen McCord, recently retired professor of Psychology, Social Science, and Ethnic Studies at Solano Community College, has developed the Millennial Civil Rights Tour.
For anyone that wants to gain a true understanding of the civil rights movement and the efforts of foot soldiers involved, this tour will leave participants well informed, empowered and inspired.
The Ultimate HBCU Tour
Now more than ever, it is important to give our youth as many opportunities as possible to learn about and experience college life. The Ultimate HBCU Tour delivers a wealth of experiences visiting up to 10 HBCU campuses throughout the South and North. In addition to the campus visits, students will have fun learning about and meeting those involved in the early civil rights struggle as well as current activists.
Nothing Is More Valuable Than Your Time
The people you surround yourself with can, influence your behavior, effect your self esteem, lift your spirit and help you become the person you ultimately want to be.
You will have the opportunity to meet many such people on Heritage Empowered Tours.
