RECAP 2016 College Tour Excursion With the generous support from DTE Energy Foundation, 45 Detroit area students participated in the 2016 annual Franklin Wright Settlement college tour. This unique experience afforded them the opportunity to visit Historical Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU’s) such as Morehouse & Clark University in Atlanta, and Tuskegee University in Alabama.

The students also had the opportunity to visit the Center for Civil Rights Museum and the King Center in Atlanta. The college tour culminated with an historic walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge (Selma, Alabama), a National Historic Landmark.
