During the weekend commemorating the life and inspiration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., more than 170 students, faculty, and staff from St. Augustine High School will leave New Orleans on buses headed to tour several civil rights sites.
The school is sending its Campus Ministry group and the members of its high-stepping Marching 100 band on a life-changing educational trip. The trip will expose the students to the places where civil rights history unfolded, including stops along the Underground Railroad that escaped slaves used to make their way to freedom in Canada. The trip will culminate with a performance by the Marching 100 in Washington, D.C., at the January 19 March for Life.
The Marching 100 is performing at three locations during the trip. Alumni, friends, supporters, and those who love good music are invited to see the band at the following stops:
