“UFxFAMU1963: Reporting From the U.S. Civil Rights Trail” features 11 students from the University of Florida and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University reflecting on their spring break trip to Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. The documentary premiered on WUFT-TV (PBS) in Gainesville, Florida, on May 23, 2023.


Sandra McDonald, a UF junior journalism major from Ocala, Florida, spoke to WUFT-FM’s Mike Loizzo about the UFxFAMU1963 trip along the U.S. Civil Rights Trail during spring break. “To stand in some of these places and contextualize them for myself in a way that I haven’t ever done before – it’s priceless,” McDonald says. The report aired on the NPR affiliate for north central Florida on May 23, 2023.
