DAY 24 - National Civil Rights Museum
Updated: Nov 22, 2021
On May 24th, two days following our Oklahoma City Memorial Visit, Rhoda and I stopped to visit the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennesee. Since this was such an emotional stop, I took just a few photos.
Part of the Smithsonian, the Museum thoroughly documents the civil rights movement in the United States commencing with reconstruction.
After walking through the Museum and the various civil rights narratives, I concluded my visit at the actual room Martin Luther King, Jr occupied the day of his assassination - April 4th, 1968.
