I'm sure most of you already know that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated here in Memphis. There are several folks here who remember that day. Their stories are as painful to hear as to recount. The profound affects of MLK's work still touch our lives today. His message lives on and there is still work to do.
A visit to the Civil Rights Museum is a must do here in Memphis.
The National Civil Rights Museum, located at the Lorraine Motel, the assassination site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., chronicles key episodes of the American civil rights movement and the legacy of this movement to inspire participation in civil and human rights efforts globally, through our collections, exhibitions, and educational programs.
