“dedicated to those who died during the Civil Rights Movement”
The Civil Rights Memorial honors the achievements and memory of those who died during the Civil Rights Movement, a period framed by the momentous Brown v. Board decision in 1954 and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968. The memorial serves as a vehicle for education and reflection about the struggle for equality.
Plan to stop on my drive back east this fall. Looks to be a fine memorial. My wife was at the first sit-in demonstration in Feb 1960. Just happen in for a cup of coffee when she found herself at a counter with 4 African Americans. When they asked what she wnted, she said "those boys were here before me, so you need to serve them first"
We made a stop here to take our 8, 6, and 4 year olds on a cross country road trip. This is a must-see. Our goal is to stop the cycle of racism by educating ourselves about our past and to teach our children to love all colors.
Very moving exhibit. Everyone should make a point to visit this museum. Definitely a highlight to our trip.
