THE U.S. CIVIL RIGHTS TRAIL
Learn How The World Changed On
“It doesn’t matter, but unfortunately we live in a world where people can’t see that in their heart due to their own fear and hate. Thankfully, it’s people like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr who helped the world to see that we’re all the same no matter our skin color or the differences between our beliefs. It’s why we visit places like this so we can learn the story, see how hard people fought for equality and continue to work for their mission in our own lives.”
I wasn’t sure how the girls would take the Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, but they were attentive, engaged and curious.
We still have work to do.
As we walked through the story from slavery to the killing of Martin Luther King Jr and beyond, we were able to talk about the inequality and segregation, the power of standing up for what you believe, and how peaceful protests can make incredible changes.
“Look at how much they were able to do simply by using peace as their foundation for change.”
Visiting attractions like this on the U.S. Civil Rights Trail helps us to see how far we’ve come, but also how much further we have to go. And the importance of us not dragging our feet or stopping the peaceful movement.
The U.S. Civil Rights Trail is a collection of over 100 attractions across 14 states.
It’s an educational and immersive connection of the events, the people, places and stories that defined the movement..
