Travel and Lodging
Airports: Selma and the larger Black Belt region are not well-served by airports. The nearest airport is in Montgomery with direct flights from Washington D.C., Atlanta, Charlotte, and Dallas-Fort Worth. Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is around a two-hour drive from Selma. The best price for flights are likely to be into Atlanta’s International Airport which is approximately three hours away. Airport shuttles to Auburn and Montgomery are readily available. We will help arrange transportation from those sites to Selma.
Lodging at Selma University
We have arranged for lodging at a nominal price from Selma University. A historic HBCU located just outside of downtown Selma, the campus is central to each days’ activities and workshops. Registration and final costs will be available in early 2023.
For those who would rather stay in a hotel, Selma has a few options. The most conveniently located is the St. James Hotel in downtown Selma. Other options nearby include a Hampton Inn and Quality Inn. We will meet each day at Selma University which is walking distance from the St. James Hotel. Staying elsewhere will require a car.
