National Civil Rights Museum


The Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968, is just one of the museum buildings at this stirring complex. Artifact displays, films, and oral histories examine Dr. King’s life and take you through American Civil Rights achievements. Exhibits include those on three centuries of slavery and early resistance and abolitionist efforts; the sit-ins, protests, and boycotts of the 1950s and ’60s; and the Black Power movements of the ’70s.
