n To the Leelanau County students who this year traveled the southern United States and learned first-hand the struggles, horrors, and tragedies faced by those who so valiantly fought for civil rights for black Americans, and really for all Americans. Students from lily-white Leelanau traveled with minority students from Detroit, immersed themselves in some of the civil rights movement’s sacred sites, and met people who waged the battle against racism and bigotry and for freedom for all. Local students likely learned lessons they’ll never — and shouldn’t — forget.
