Martin Luther King Day at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute
January 16, 2006By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Dr. King

In honor of Dr. King, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is offering free admission all day long. Opened in 1992, the Institute offers the best, most comprehensive and moving exhibitions on the history of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. A walk through the galleries—past replicas of segregated streetcars and fountains, a replica of the bombed and scarred Freedom Riders' bus, films and media presentations—is a journey through the events of the 1960s and the struggle for equality and racial justice. Importantly, the exhibitions highlight the Civil Rights Movement in relation to the ongoing international human rights movement today.
