Reasons to Visit

Civil Rights Memorial

This beautiful and fitting monument, designed by Maya Lin, honors those who died during the civil rights movement and serves as a vehicle for education and reflection on the struggle for equality. In addition to state-of-the-art exhibits and in-depth information about Civil Rights Movement martyrs, the Civil Rights Memorial Center houses a 56-seat theater, a classroom for educational activities, a section dedicated to contemporary social justice issues and the Wall of Tolerance.

Sweet Auburn Avenue Visitor Center

The hub of African-American culture at the turn of the century. Many of Atlanta's black leaders, entrepreneurs and artists congregated in the Sweet Auburn district, and although the area experienced a period of decline, tremendous preservation efforts have brought a rebirth to the area. The Sweet Auburn district is the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a historic site that includes a visitor center depicting the story of Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement.

16th Street Baptist Church

On Sunday morning, September 15, 1963, the Ku Klux Klan bombed the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four girls. This murderous act shocked the nation and galvanized the civil rights movement. The deaths of the children followed by the loss of President Kennedy two months later gave birth to a tide of grief and anger--a surge of emotional momentum that helped ensure the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
