Must see! Learned so much about the history, struggle, and hard to comprehend treatment of Black Americans. I'm not a history person, so this filled in a lot of gaps for me. Highly recommend!!

This Memorial Center honors those assassinated as a result of their civil rights actions. It fits beautifully with the new National Memorial for Peace and Justice, honoring those who were lynched by white supremacists just a little earlier.
