The Center for Civil and Human Rights is a powerful, moving museum that ties the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s with the today's global Human Rights movement. Visitors can tour a number of permanent and temporary exhibits, including the Morehouse College collection of MLK memorabilia, an interactive gallery of the Civil Rights Movement and a human rights exhibit that encourages onlookers to identify with modern-day activists around the globe who are being persecuted in their own countries. Expect to see emotionally raw images and portrayals at this new Atlanta attraction, watching, seeing, hearing and interacting with history in an intimate and modern setting. The Center will stir your emotions, move you to tears, allow you to celebrate how far we have come and recognize how far we have to go.
