Springfield Student To Tour Civil Rights Sites With Congressional Delegation


A Springfield High School student will accompany Congressman Aaron Schock and other members of Congress on a weekend tour of major sites related to the civil rights struggle.

 

That three-day tour through Alabama will include stops at Montgomery, Birmingham and Selma… where protests and, at times, violence marked the long quest for racial equality.

 

Onsi Kamel, who serves as the student representative on the Springfield School Board, was chosen to join the congressional delegation on the trip, which will also include participation in a re-enactment of a civil rights march.

 

Vice-President Joe Biden will also take part in that event.
