Dr. Derek Alderman featured on WalletHub

Dr. Derek Alderman was featured in WalletHub’s recent study – 2022’s Best & Worst States for Summer Road Trips.

Here are Dr. Alderman’s advice on summer road trips:

I would encourage and expect to see many American travelers taking summer road trips to historical sites and park areas that allow the public to explore the history of the civil rights struggles of the United States.

As more states pass laws that seriously limit discussions of racism and inequality in America’s schools, it will be important for families to identify and explore road trips that help children and parents explore these lessons and think about their relevance for understanding the country today.

Destinations such as Equal Justice Institute’s National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the nation’s first memorial to the victims of racial terror lynching, are one of these important must-sees.
