The Road Trip Has Begun!



 
Current location: Effingham, IL
High temperature: 101 degrees at a humid rest stop in Missouri
Weirdest sight of the day: Man running across I-70 right in front of our car. Eep!
We left Denver on Sunday, August 26, with all of our possessions either in our car or our storage unit.
In the first three days, we’ve driven 953 miles across four states (three just today!) and had a successful visit with family.
Yesterday we had the moving experience of visiting the Brown vs. Board of Education National Historic Site in Topeka, Kansas. Having recently read The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schools in America, we know there’s much work yet to be done to get to truly integrated and equal schools in this country.
This is the mural that was commissioned to be painted across the street from the site: 
What are we doing on this trip? We are visiting friends, family and beautiful places. But we are also making a documentary. More on that in coming posts!
