MEMPHIS, Tenn. — As an extension of the Juneteenth holiday, National Civil Rights Museum held a free admission event on Tuesday, June 21.
Guests could tour the entire museum, with a focus on the Solidarity Now and Poverty Today exhibits.
It was an opportunity to learn about the Civil Rights Movement, Slavery, Jim Crow Laws, Student Sit-Ins, Montgomery Bus Boycott, and other sacrifices that were made, that allowed for the freedom of future generations today.
Be prepared to spend some time in this exhibit, as there are 24 stories that are being told, including the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and quotes from celebrities about their visit to the National Civil Rights Museum.
